Facts and Mysteries in Elementary Particle Physics - download pdf or read online

By Martinus J G Veltman

This ebook presents a complete assessment of recent particle physics obtainable to someone with a real ardour for desirous to understand how the universe works. we're brought to the recognized debris of the realm we are living in. a sublime clarification of quantum mechanics and relativity paves the way in which for an figuring out of the legislation that govern particle physics. those legislation are positioned into motion on the planet of accelerators, colliders and detectors stumbled on at associations akin to CERN and Fermilab which are within the vanguard of technical innovation. actual global and concept meet utilizing Feynman diagrams to resolve the issues of infinities and deduce the necessity for the Higgs boson.

Facts and Mysteries in trouble-free Particle Physics bargains an immense perception from an eyewitness and player in a number of the maximum discoveries in twentieth century technological know-how. From Einstein's idea of relativity to the elusive Higgs particle, this ebook will fascinate and teach someone drawn to the area of quarks, leptons and gauge theories.

This ebook additionally includes many thumbnail sketches of particle physics personalities, together with contemporaries as noticeable during the eyes of the writer. Illustrated with images, those candid sketches current infrequent, perceptive perspectives of the characters that populate the field.

The bankruptcy on Particle concept, in a pre-publication, was once termed “superbly lucid” by means of David Miller in Nature (Vol. 396, 17 Dec. 1998, p. 642).
