Gauge Theories in Particle Physics
Yuri Popov rated it really liked it Apr 04, A Practical Introduction, Volume 1: Taking into account recent experimental progress, this revised and updated edition of a classic textbook provides an accessible and practical introduction to the three gauge theories included in the Standard Model of particle physics: Its strength has always been the combination of the theory with discussion of experimental results.
The authors discuss the main conceptual points of the theory, detail many practical calculations of physical quantities from first principles, and compare these quantitative predictions with experimental results, helping readers improve paeticle their calculation skills and physical insight.
The book includes self-contained presentations of electromagnetism as a gauge theory as well as relativistic quantum mechanics. Randy marked it as to-read Dec 21, It also updates many other topics, including paarticle algorithms, lattice QCD, effective Lagrangians, and three-generation quark mixing and the CKM matrix.

All instructor resources are now available on our Instructor Hub. A new chapter on CP violation and oscillation phenomena describes CP violation in B-meson decays as well as the main experiments that have led to our current knowledge of mass-squared differences and mixing angles in neutrino physics. Volume 2 has been updated with extended discussions on quark and neutrino mixing and inclusion of results on CP violation and neutrino oscillations New to the Kn Edition New chapter on Lorentz transformations and discrete symmetries in relativistic quantum mechanics, with physical applications Introduction of Majorana fermions physisc an early stage, making the material suitable for a first course in relativistic quantum mechanics Physiccs symmetries in quantum field theory Updates on nucleon structure functions and the status of QED The authors discuss the main conceptual points of the theory, detail many practical calculations of physical quantities from first principles, and compare these quantitative predictions with experimental results, helping readers improve both their calculation skills and physical insight.
It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples. Volume 1 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical gaauge to the first gauge theory included in the Standard Model of particle physics: If you like books and love to build aktchison products, we may be looking for you.
