An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics by W. N. Cottingham,D. A. Greenwood

By W. N. Cottingham,D. A. Greenwood

the hot variation of this introductory graduate textbook offers a concise yet obtainable advent to the normal version. it's been up to date to account for the successes of the idea of sturdy interactions, and the observations on matter-antimatter asymmetry. It has develop into transparent that neutrinos aren't mass-less, and this e-book provides a coherent presentation of the phenomena and the idea that describes them. It contains an account of growth within the conception of robust interactions and of advances in neutrino physics. The e-book basically develops the theoretical ideas from the electromagnetic and susceptible interactions of leptons and quarks to the powerful interactions of quarks. each one bankruptcy ends with difficulties, and tricks to chose difficulties are supplied on the finish of the booklet. The mathematical remedies are compatible for graduates in physics, and extra refined mathematical principles are built within the textual content and appendices.
