Gauge Theories of the Strong, Weak, and Electromagnetic by Chris Quigg

By Chris Quigg

This thoroughly revised and up to date graduate-level textbook is a perfect creation to gauge theories and their functions to high-energy particle physics, and takes an in-depth examine new legislation of nature--quantum chromodynamics and the electroweak concept. From quantum electrodynamics via unified theories of the interactions between leptons and quarks, Chris Quigg examines the common sense and constitution at the back of gauge theories and the experimental underpinnings of state-of-the-art theories. Quigg emphasizes how we all know what we all know, and within the period of the massive Hadron Collider, his insightful survey of the traditional version and the subsequent nice questions for particle physics makes for compelling reading.

The brand-new variation exhibits how the electroweak thought constructed in dialog with scan. that includes a wide-ranging therapy of electroweak symmetry breaking, the physics of the Higgs boson, and the significance of the 1-TeV scale, the ebook strikes past verified wisdom and investigates the trail towards unified theories of robust, susceptible, and electromagnetic interactions. specific calculations and various workouts enable readers to derive the implications of those theories. broad annotated bibliographies accompany every one bankruptcy, magnify issues of conceptual or technical curiosity, introduce additional purposes, and lead readers to the study literature. scholars and professional practitioners will make the most of the text's present insights, and experts wishing to appreciate gauge theories will locate the booklet a great reference for self-study.

  • Brand-new version of a landmark textual content introducing gauge theories
  • Consistent recognition to how we all know what we know
  • Explicit calculations enhance techniques and have interaction with experiment
  • Interesting and various difficulties sharpen talents and ideas
  • Extensive annotated bibliographies
