9780521588324: An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics

This graduate textbook provides a concise, accessible introduction to the Standard Model of particle physics. Theoretical concepts are developed clearly and carefully throughout the book--from the electromagnetic and weak interactions of leptons and quarks to the strong interactions of quarks. Chapters developing the theory are interspersed with chapters describing some of the wealth of experimental data supporting the model. The book assumes only the standard mathematics taught in an undergraduate physics course; more sophisticated mathematical ideas are developed in the text and in appendices. For graduate students in particle physics and physicists working in other fields who are interested in the current understanding of the ultimate constituents of matter, this textbook provides a lucid and up-to-date introduction.

Book Description:

This introductory graduate textbook provides a concise but accessible introduction to the theory central to particle physics--the so-called Standard Model. Chapters developing the theory are interspersed with chapters describing some of the wealth of experimental data. To consolidate understanding, each chapter is rounded off with a set of problems and outline solutions. The book assumes only standard mathematics acquired from undergraduate physics; more sophisticated mathematical ideas are developed in the text and in appendices. For graduate students in particle physics and physicists working in other fields who are interested in the current understanding of the ultimate constituents of matter, this textbook provides a lucid and up-to-date introduction.
