Elementary Particle Physics: Quantum Field Theory and Particles, Volume 1

Front Cover
Wiley, Sep 14, 2010 - Science - 964 pages
Meeting the need for a coherently written and comprehensive compendium combining field theory and particle physics for advanced students and researchers, this book directly links the theory to the experiments. It is clearly divided into two sections covering approaches to field theory and the standard model, and rounded off with numerous useful appendices.
A timely volume for high energy and theoretical physicists, as well as astronomers, graduate students and lecturers in physics.
Volume 2 concentrates on the main aspects of the Standard Model by addressing its recent developments and future prospects. Furthermore, it gives some thought to intriguing ideas beyond the Standard Model, including the Higgs boson, the neutrino, the concepts of the Grand Unified Theory and supersymmetry, axions, and cosmological developments.
