 Summary
 This book is a concise introduction to the key concepts of classical field theory for beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduate students who wish to study the unifying structures and physical insights provided by classical field theory without dealing with the additional complication of quantization. In that regard, there are many important aspects of field theory that can be understood without quantizing the fields. These include the action formulation, Galilean and relativistic invariance, traveling and standing waves, spin angular momentum, gauge invariance, subsidiary conditions, fluctuations, spinor and vector fields, conservation laws and symmetries, and the Higgs mechanism, all of which are often treated briefly in a course on quantum field theory

 Biographical or historical data
 Mark Swanson received his PhD in physics from the University of Missouri at Columbia in 1976. After a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, he joined the physics department at the University of Connecticut in 1979. His research focused on the relationship between canonical quantization techniques and the functional approach of path integrals, which led to authoring the monograph Path Integrals and Quantum Processes. In addition, he served in an administrative capacity as the Stamford Campus director and an associate dean. He retired in 2014 and is now emeritus professor of physics. He lives in Connecticut with his wife where he continues to work on physics, programming computers, and amusing himself with the guitar.
