A unique insight into particle physics for researchers and graduate students, this second edition contains new chapters on the W and Z bosons, the top quark discovery, B-meson mixing and CP violation, and neutrino oscillations. Each chapter is accompanied by reprinted articles, and problems with a broad range of difficulty.

From reviews of the first edition: 'I believe this text to represent a major achievement in collecting, analysing and distilling for the reader, material forming an intensely exciting chapter in modern science.' D. H. Perkins, NatureÜber den Autor:
Robert Cahn is a Senior Physicist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His theoretical work has focused on the Standard Model, and, together with his collaborators, he developed one of the most promising methods for discovering the Higgs boson. As a member of the BaBar Collaboration, he participated in the measurement of CP violation in B mesons.
Gerson Goldhaber is a Professor in the Graduate School at the University of California at Berkeley, and Faculty Senior Physicist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He is co-discoverer of the antiproton annihilation process, the Bose-Einstein nature of pions, the J/Psi particle and psion spectroscopy, charmed mesons, and dark energy.
