From the Publisher:
In Particle Physics: A Very Short Introduction, best-selling author Frank Close provides a compelling and lively introduction to the fundamental particles that make up the universe. The book begins with a guide to what matter is made up of and how it evolved, and goes on to describe the fascinating and cutting-edge techniques used to study it. The author discusses particles such as quarks, electrons, and the neutrino, and exotic matter and antimatter. He also investigates the forces of nature, accelerators and detectors, and the intriguing future of particle physics. This book is essential reading for general readers interested in popular science, students of physics, and scientists at all levels.
Customer Reviews of Particle Physics
Wonderful Book, delivers what is promised, a clear concise description of the basics of particle physics, I would not recommend if you have difficulty understanding abstract concepts, as the book and field in general are chock full of abstractions. Only thing I would've wanted is a more in depth look at the various mesons. Favorite part was that regarding the existence of matter through Spontaneous symmetry breaking.
