Modern Particle Physics, Hardback

Modern Particle Physics Hardback



Unique in its coverage of all aspects of modern particle physics, this textbook provides a clear connection between the theory and recent experimental results, including the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN.

It provides a comprehensive and self-contained description of the Standard Model of particle physics suitable for upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students studying experimental particle physics.

Physical theory is introduced in a straightforward manner with full mathematical derivations throughout.

Fully-worked examples enable students to link the mathematical theory to results from modern particle physics experiments.

End-of-chapter exercises, graded by difficulty, provide students with a deeper understanding of the subject.

Online resources available at feature password-protected fully-worked solutions to problems for instructors, numerical solutions and hints to the problems for students and PowerPoint slides and JPEGs of figures from the book.
