Concepts In Particle Physics: A Concise Introduction to the Standard Model
Authors : V Parameswaran Nair (City College of the City University of New York, USA)
Publisher : World Scientific
ISBN : 978-981-3227-55-2
This book is an attempt to put the key concepts of particle physics together in an appealing way, and yet give enough extra tidbits for students seriously considering graduate studies in particle physics. It starts with some recapitulation of relativity and quantum mechanics, and then builds on it to give both conceptual ideas regarding the Standard Model of particle physics as well as technical details. It is presented in an informal lecture style, and includes "remarks" sections where extra material, history, or technical details are presented for the interested student. The last lecture presents an assessment of the open questions, and where the future might take us.
