An Introduction to Gauge Theories and Modern Particle by Elliot Leader, Enrico Predazzi

By Elliot Leader, Enrico Predazzi

Chief and Predazzi have written an exsellent textual content for graduate scholars. They hide the big variety of subject matters in nice readability. particularly within the bankruptcy approximately renormalization they reach proposing the center intimately with no technical obfuscation.

Why Quark Rhymes With Pork

A set of offbeat, unique and essentially nontechnical essays on physics and those that perform it, from eminent theoretical physicist N. David Mermin. Bringing jointly for the 1st time all thirty of his columns released in Physics modern Reference body sequence from 1988 to 2009, with updating statement, this funny and strange quantity comprises 13 different essays, lots of them formerly unpublished.

In fact most of the information had by then already appeared in a long article in The New York Times and rumours about the discovery had been circulating for some time.

For an excellent discussion of the physics of weak interactions see Wu and Moskowski (1966).

We shall generally assume that universality holds and that r, p, e behave identically in their weak interactions. Further tests will be discussed in later chapters. 2 The need for a gauge theory In this chapter we examine some of the problems inherent in the currentcurrent form of the weak interaction Lagrangian, and are led to the idea of the weak force being mediated by the exchange of vector mesons. This picture too runs into difficulties which, however, can be alleviated in gauge-invariant theories.
