Instrumentation in Elementary Particle Physics: The VII ICFA School

Front Cover
G. Herrera Corral, M.S. Aquino
American Inst. of Physics, May 15, 1998 - Science - 445 pages
This book is intended for amateurs, students and teachers. The author presents partial results which could be obtained with exclusively elementary methods. The proofs are given in detail, with minimal prerequisites. An original feature are the ten interludes, devoted to important topics of elementary number theory, thus making the reading of this book self-contained. Their interest goes beyond Fermat's theorem. The Epilogue is a serious attempt to render accessible the strategy of the recent proof of Fermat's last theorem, a great mathematical feat.
