Serone:

my lectures will be quite pedagogical and in principle all the background will be provided there.
Anyhow, some familiarity with the 3 references below would certainly be useful.

1) Zinn-Justin, “Quantum Field Theory and Critical Phenomena”, 4th Edition.
Chapters 39-43, in particular chapter 42.

2) Section 3 of E. Witten, “Analytic Continuation Of Chern-Simons Theory,’’ arXiv:1001.2933 [hep-th].

3) M. Serone, G. Spada and G. Villadoro, “The Power of Perturbation Theory,’’ arXiv:1702.04148 [hep-th].
