 Summary

This book focuses on the basics of particle physics, while covering as many frontier advances as possible.The book introduces readers to the principle of symmetry, properties and classification of particles, the quark model of hadrons and the interactions of particles. Following which, the book offers a stepbystep presentation on the unified theory of electromagnetic and weak interaction, as well as the gauge theory of strong interaction: quantum chromodynamics (QCD).In sequential order of the book's development, readers will study topics on the deep inelastic scattering and parton model, the mixing of electrically neutral particle and antiparticles of neutral K meson, neutral B meson and neutral D meson, the CP nonconservation, the charmonium, the exotic states, the glueball and hybrid state, the lattice gauge theory, the neutrino oscillation and CP violation of lepton system. Several new models beyond the standard model, such as the grand unified theory and supersymmetric model, are then discussed. As one of the salient takeaways of this book, readers will also explore the interface between cosmology and particle physics.This book is suitable for senior undergraduates, graduate students, teachers and researchers in the field of particle physics. It is also valuable for experimental and theoretical particle physicists as a foundation for further research.

 Summary

Higgs Force is a gripping account of the scientists who have revealed the hidden structure of the natural world. It is the story of the fundamental components of matter and the forces that bind them together; a tale that is woven around the symmetry at the heart of the universe and the mystery of how this symmetry is broken. The book is divided into three parts. The first three chapters provide the broad historical and philosophical context. The next three describe, in turn, each of the forces that are important in particle physics. The final three chapters are about the modern synthesis of the particles and forces and the search for the last missing piece in the particle physics jigsaw.

 Summary

The new experiments underway at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland may significantly change our understanding of elementary particle physics and, indeed, the universe. This textbook provides a cuttingedge introduction to the field, preparing firstyear graduate students and advanced undergraduates to understand and work in LHC physics at the dawn of what promises to be an era of experimental and theoretical breakthroughs. Christopher Tully, an active participant in the work at the LHC, explains some of the most recent experiments in the field. But this book, which emerged from a course at Princeton University, also provides a comprehensive understanding of the subject. It explains every elementary particle physics process  whether it concerns nonaccelerator experiments, particle astrophysics, or the description of the early universe  as a gauge interaction coupled to the known building blocks of matter. Designed for a onesemester course that is complementary to a course in quantum field theory, the book gives special attention to highenergy collider physics, and includes a detailed discussion of the state of the search for the Higgs boson. It introduces elementary particle processes relevant to astrophysics, collider physics, and the physics of the early universe. It covers experimental methods, detectors, and measurements. It features a detailed discussion of the Higgs boson search. It includes many challenging exercises. Professors: A supplementary Instructor's Manual is available for this book. It is restricted to teachers using the text in courses.
