Publisher Comments:

The book provides theoretical and phenomenological insights on the structure of matter, presenting concepts and features of elementary particle physics and fundamental aspects of nuclear physics. Starting with the basics (nomenclature, classification, acceleration techniques, detection of elementary particles), the properties of fundamental interactions (electromagnetic, weak and strong) are introduced with a mathematical formalism suited to undergraduate students. Some experimental results (the discovery of neutral currents and of the W± and Z0 bosons; the quark structure observed using deep inelastic scattering experiments) show the necessity of an evolution of the formalism. This motivates a more detailed description of the weak and strong interactions, of the Standard Model of the microcosm with its experimental tests, and of the Higgs mechanism. The open problems in the Standard Model of the microcosm and macrocosm are presented at the end of the book. For example, the CP violation currently measured does not explain the matter­-antimatter asymmetry of the observable universe; the neutrino oscillations and the estimated amount of cosmological dark matter seem to require new physics beyond the Standard Model. A list of other introductory texts, work reviews and some specialized publications is reported in the bibliography.

Synopsis:

This book aims to provide the basis of theoretical and phenomenological knowledge of the structure of matter at the subatomic level.Organized in such a way that it can be used by undergraduate students specialized either in particle or nuclear physics, it starts by presenting the general concepts at the simplest level which does not require previous knowledge of the field, except for the basic quantum mechanics. The students are gradually guided towards the more advanced arguments presented in Chapters 9 to 13, generally addressed to graduate and PhD students in experimental high-energy physics.
