The traditional goal of particle physics has been to identify what appear to be structureless units of existence of the c-quark, within the framework of gauge theories of electroweak interactions discussed in Aitchison ().

Volume 1 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical introduction to the first gauge theory included in the Standard Model of particle physics: The book includes self-contained presentations of electromagnetism as a gauge theory as well as relativistic quantum mechanics.
It provides a unique elementary introduction to quantum field theory, establishing the essentials of the formal and conceptual framework upon which the subsequent development of the three gauge theories is based. The text also describes tree-level calculations of physical processes in QED and introduces ideas of renormalization in the context of one-loop radiative corrections for QED.
New chapter on Lorentz transformations and discrete symmetries in relativistic quantum mechanics, with physical applications Introduction of Majorana fermions at an early stage, making the material suitable for a first course in relativistic quantum mechanics Discrete symmetries in quantum field theory Updates on nucleon structure functions and the status of QED.
Gauge Theories in Particle Physics, 2 Volume set by I.J.R. Aitchison
The authors discuss the main conceptual points of the theory, detail many practical calculations of physical quantities from first principles, and compare these quantitative predictions with experimental results, helping readers improve both their calculation skills and physical insight.
Aitchison has published over 90 scientific papers mainly on hadronic physics and quantum field theory. Hey is Vice President of Microsoft Research Connections, where he is responsible for the worldwide external research and technical computing strategy across Microsoft Corporation. A fellow of the U.
Royal Academy of Engineering, Dr. Hey was previously the director of the U.
His research interests encompass parallel programming for parallel systems built from mainstream commodity components. This initiated the process that led to the successful MPI standard inn today.
As an experimentalist, this book helped me understand the theoretical underpinnings of my work. Its strength has always been the combination of the theory with discussion of experimental results. The new edition continues this tradition by including background on discrete symmetries … This will become a new classic.
Gauge Theories in Particle Physics
As a lecturer in an advanced course on the Standard Model for experimentalists, I use the books for the more theoretical aspects and as a constant source for clear explanations of the underlying physics.
I also know it to be the recommended text on numerous theoretical modules in particle physics. We provide complimentary gaute copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption. Learn More about VitalSource Bookshelf.
