This text gives an introduction to particle physics at a level accessible to advanced undergraduate students. It is based on lectures given to 4th year physics students over a number of years, and reflects the feedback from the students. The aim is to explain the theoretical and experimental basis of the Standard Model (SM) of Particle Physics with the simplest mathematical treatment possible. All the experimental discoveries that led to the understanding of the SM relied on particle detectors and most of them required advanced particle accelerators. A unique feature of this book is that it gives a serious introduction to the fundamental accelerator and detector physics, which is currently only available in advanced graduate textbooks. The mathematical tools that are required such as group theory are covered in one chapter. A modern treatment of the Dirac equation is given in which the free particle Dirac equation is seen as being equivalent to the Lorentz transformation. The idea of generating the SM interactions from fundamental gauge symmetries is explained. The core of the book covers the SM. The tools developed are used to explain its theoretical basis and a clear discussion is given of the critical experimental evidence which underpins it. A thorough account is given of quark flavour and neutrino oscillations based on published experimental results, including some from running experiments. A simple introduction to the Higgs sector of the SM is given. This explains the key idea of how spontaneous symmetry breaking can generate particle masses without violating the underlying gauge symmetry. A key feature of this book is that it gives an accessible explanation of the discovery of the Higgs boson, including the advanced statistical techniques required. The final chapter gives an introduction to LHC physics beyond the standard model and the techniques used in searches for new physics. There is an outline of the shortcomings of the SM and a discussion of possible solutions and future experiments to resolve these outstanding questions.
About Giles Barr
Robin Devenish studied mathematics and physics at the University of Cambridge. After postdoctoral positions at Lancaster University and University College London, he joined the DESY laboratory in Hamburg in 1973. At DESY he worked on electronpositron annihilation physics with the PLUTO experiment on the DORIS and PETRA colliders. In 1979 he joined the Physics Department at Oxford University, continuing to work on e e physics at DESY, but now with the TASSO experiment. He was a founder member of the Oxford team that joined the ZEUS experiment at the electronproton collider HERA (also at DESY). His work at HERA focused on using deepinelastic scattering to probe experimental aspects of quantum chromodynamics. With Amanda CooperSarkar he wrote the definitive text on 'DeepInelastic Scattering' (OUP 2004). Tony Weidberg did a PhD at the University of Cambridge and then worked from 19821989 at CERN on the UA2 experiment at the CERN antiprotonproton collider. He worked on the discovery of the W and Z bosons and on the development of a novel scintillating fibre detector. He moved to Oxford in 1989 to work on silicon detector RDetails Book

Margo Anderson Get eBook Particle Physics in the LHC Era
Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these I can get now!

Lisa Doran Best website free download ebook
I was suspicious at first when i got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited i found this online library....many thanks Kisses

Markus Jensen How to download Particle Physics in the LHC Era eBook?
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook

Roddy Murray
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
