Modern Elementary Particle Physicsby Gordon Kane
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Revised and updated from the 1987 version. Rather than giving a historical treatment, the author explains the modern standard model and the gauge theory of the interactions of quarks and leptons via exchange of photons, W and Z bosons, and gluons. The treatment avoids technical details, but fully explains the basic physics involved. Open questions and directions of future research are discussed. Problem sets are included.
