Download An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics by W. N. Cottingham,D. A. Greenwood PDF

By W. N. Cottingham,D. A. Greenwood

the recent version of this introductory graduate textbook presents a concise yet available advent to the traditional version. it's been up to date to account for the successes of the idea of sturdy interactions, and the observations on matter-antimatter asymmetry. It has turn into transparent that neutrinos will not be mass-less, and this e-book offers a coherent presentation of the phenomena and the idea that describes them. It contains an account of development within the thought of sturdy interactions and of advances in neutrino physics. The e-book in actual fact develops the theoretical innovations from the electromagnetic and susceptible interactions of leptons and quarks to the robust interactions of quarks. each one bankruptcy ends with difficulties, and tricks to chose difficulties are supplied on the finish of the publication. The mathematical remedies are appropriate for graduates in physics, and extra refined mathematical principles are built within the textual content and appendices.
