Adarsh Mishra rated it really liked it Jul 15, This self-contained text describes breakthroughs in our understanding of the structure and interactions of elementary particles. I’m trying to avoid saying that they are fields because a field is a variable that can be assigned a number or spinor or some such thing; that’s not what I’m getting at here.
Gell-mann in current algebra. In this regard, Griffith’s Introduction to Elementary particlesI think, uses a clearer notation. All of them are dispersed throughout the text, and in many ways they create an unnecessary connecting material between various topics. In the light of that this is perhaps better suited for a graduate-level course than one aimed at the undergraduates, even the more advanced ones.

Moreover it doesn’t give a glance of the experimental part of particle physics which, in my opinion, is as important as theory. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.

However, it does use a lot of Quantum Field Theory for the derivation of some important basic results, and does so almost from the very first few pages. Jul 18, Bojan Tunguz rated it really liked it. I think a much more suitable textbook for upper level undergraduates would be David Griffiths’ Introduction to Elementary Particles.

Quarks and Leptones: An Introductory Course in Modern Particle Physics by Francis Halzen
There are a couple ways I can think of to interpret it: Account Options Sign in. I would have also liked if this textbook were a bit more up to date.
My point in the second paragraph is that the p and n in the doublet are not mathematical variables. Be the first to write a review. So as an introductory book it’s not helpful at all. It provides students of theoretical or experimental physics with the background material to grasp the significance of these developments. If you’re looking for a clear and complete book in order to gain the basis of particle physics i’d suggest “Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics” by Alessandro Bettini or “Nuclear and Particle Physics” by W.

There is very little room in the middle, and therefore it is very hard to come up with a suitable textbook that will do justice to the field and yet be accessible enough for upper-level undergraduates or beginning graduate students. All of this can still be achieved by going to supplementary materials, and the lack of these topics in no way diminishes the quality of this very solid textbook.

Grayson Williams rated it it was amazing Feb 08, Another thing that may be of concern to some is a rather limited number of problems in this textbook. Granted, a lot of what goes by the name of Particle Physics these days is haozen speculative and out of touch with reality that it absolutely has no place in any textbook, but a few important topics like neutrino masses that have become well established would have been good topics to cover.
