The most significant new developments in high energy physics, such as the experimental verification of W+Z particles and new tests of the theory of quark interactions update this Third Edition. Professor Perkins provides a balance between experimental and theoretical concepts, with treatment that is informal and empirical, emphasizing the basic theoretical concepts rather than mathematical detail, and key experiments in the field and how they have influenced our thinking. Key experiments include helicity of the neutrino, electric dipole moment of the neutron, the level spectrum of heavy quark-antiquark states, and deep inelastic scattering of leptons by nucleons.

The 4th edition of a textbook that has dominated advanced undergraduate and graduate particle physics teaching for the last 25 years. The author is a senior figure of modern day particle physics and brings a unique authority and depth of understanding to the subject. The new edition has been extensively rewritten and completely updated. Completely new chapters have been added to cover the burgeoning field connecting particle physics with cosmology, and another new chapter introduces exciting new topics such as supersymmetry, superstrings, neutrino masses and grand unified theories.About the Author:
