Advanced Particle Physics Two-Volume Set, Paperback / softback Book


Providing a complete foundation to comprehend the physics of the microworld, Advanced Particle Physics, Two-Volume Set develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to understand current experiments and make predictions for future experiments.

The set brings together a vast array of topics in modern particle physics and distills the material in a rigorous yet accessible manner.

All intermediate mathematical steps are derived and numerous application examples help readers gain a thorough, working knowledge of the subject. The first volume on particles, fields, and quantum electrodynamics covers:The mathematical foundation of quantum field theoryThe interactions and particles of the Standard ModelHow accelerators, detectors, and neutrino telescopes are used in particle physics experimentsThe technique of renormalization in quantum electrodynamicsThe second volume on the Standard Model and beyond discusses:The technique of renormalization in quantum chromodynamics (QCD)The status of current QCD experimentsPhysics beyond the Standard Model, including composite models and a left-right model How solar and atmospheric neutrinos are detected and analyzedThe books in this two-volume set enable readers not only to perform complicated and skilled calculations, but also to propose and elaborate new theories.

Each book contains extensive references that offer a comprehensive perspective on the literature and historical development of particle physics.
