    Lin Enger: IMG Knowing vs. Knowing



    On a hot July evening years ago, my Toyota Tercel overheated on a flat stretch of highway north of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A steam geyser shot up from... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Standard Model and Beyond presents an advanced introduction to the physics and formalism of the standard model and other non-abelian gauge theories. It provides a solid background for understanding supersymmetry, string theory, extra dimensions, dynamical symmetry breaking, and cosmology.

The book first reviews calculational techniques in field theory and the status of quantum electrodynamics. It then focuses on global and local symmetries and the construction of non-abelian gauge theories, before explaining the structure and tests of quantum chromodynamics. The book also describes the electroweak interactions and theory, including neutrino masses. The final chapter discusses the motivations for extending the standard model and examines supersymmetry, extended gauge groups, and grand unification.

Thoroughly covering gauge field theories, symmetries, and topics beyond the standard model, this text equips readers with the tools to understand the structure and phenomenological consequences of the standard model, to construct extensions, and to perform calculations at tree level. It establishes the necessary background for readers to carry out more advanced research in particle physics.

    Supplementary materials are provided on the author 's website and a solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.

    Book News Annotation:

    This is an advanced introduction to the physics and formalism of the standard model of particle physics, which is currently the most commonly accepted theory of the strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions, and other non-abelian gauge theories. Assuming an introductory-level background in particle physics, Langacker (Institute for Advanced Study) intends the work to provide researchers with the ability to understand the structure and phenomenological consequences of the standard model, construct extensions, and carry out calculations at tree level. Eight chapters address notations and conventions, calculational techniques in field theory and the status of quantum dynamics, global and local symmetries and the construction of non-abelian gauge theories, the strong interactions and the structure and tests of quantum chromodynamics, electroweak interactions and theory (including neutrino masses), extensions to the standard model, supersymmetry, extended gauge groups, and grand unification.
