The second volume of this authoritative work traces the material outlined in the first, but in far greater detail and with a much higher degree of sophistication. The authors begin with the theory of the electromagnetic interaction, and then consider hadronic structure, exploring the accuracy of the quark model by examining the excited states of baryons and mesons. They introduce the color variable as a prelude to the development of quantum chromodynamics, the theory of the strong interaction, and go on to discuss the electroweak interaction--the broken symmetry of which they explain by the Higgs mechanism--and conclude with a consideration of grand unification theories.

This second volume presents a more extensive and deeper treatment of the subjects treated in the first volume. It is not an independent book-Volume I is the chapter of the complete work. The background required is the same as for the first volume: a knowledge of electrodynamics, relativity, and nonrelativistic elementary quantum mechanics.About the Author:
Kurt Gottfried is at Cornell University. Victor F. Weisskopf is at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
