内容説明

This book is intended for the use of final-year undergraduates and first-year postgraduates. The aim has been to concentrate on the 'Standard Model' and the gauge symmetries because these form the core of the subject. Leptons, quarks and forces are introduced at the beginning of the book, with a minimum of detail; then follow the experimental techniques. After this introduction the gauge theories are dealt with in order of increasing complexity. Attention is then focused on the hadrons. Deep inelastic scattering ofhadrons is dealt with first, then hadron spectroscopy and finally hadron interactions. Current developments beyond the standard model appear in a last chapter. The appendices contain mathematical detail and other material not included in the main text. These appendices cover kinematic, cross-section and decay-rate formulae; Breit-Wigner resonances; some Clebsch-Gordan coefficient tables; a table of particle properties; a set of exercises and detailed answers; and the Dirac equation. One appendix is devoted to calculating the scattering amplitudes for fermion + fermion going to fermion + fermion, which is, if anything, the 'basic' process. The appendices, apart from tabulations, are mainly intended for the postgraduate, though the interested undergraduate may also find them valuable. Up-to-date references are given at the end of the book.

内容説明

The last few years have seen particular excitement in particle physics, culminating in the experimental confirmation of the W and Z particles. Ian Kenyon, who was involved in the UA1 experiment at CERN that searched for the particles, provides an introduction to particle physics and takes a refreshingly non-historical approach. The aim of the book has been to concentrate on the 'standard model' and the gauge symmetries because these form the core of the subject. Leptons, quarks and forces are introduced at the beginning. After this introduction the gauge theories are dealt with in order of increasing complexity. Attention is then focussed on the hadrons - deep inelastic scattering of hadrons, then hadron spectroscopy and finally hadron interactions. Current developments beyond the standard model appear in the last chapter. This book should be of interest to third year undergraduate students; postgraduates in particle physics, nuclear physics; researchers in nuclear physics.
