Inhaltsangabe: The Standard Model is the most comprehensive physical theory ever developed. This 2008 textbook conveys the basic elements of the Standard Model using elementary concepts, without the theoretical rigor found in most other texts on this subject. It contains examples of basic experiments, allowing readers to see how measurements and theory interplay in the development of physics. The author examines leptons, hadrons and quarks, before presenting the dynamics and the surprising properties of the charges of the different forces. The textbook concludes with a brief discussion on the discoveries of physics beyond the Standard Model, and its connections with cosmology. Quantitative examples are given, and the reader is guided through the necessary calculations. Each chapter ends in the exercises, and solutions to some problems are included in the book. Complete solutions are available to instructors at www.cambridge.org/9781107406094.
Review of the hardback: 'There are many gems within these pages ? The author has managed to bring out the importance of experiment in the field, and to explain both the reasoning and the difficulties behind these experiments, but does not get bogged down in minutiae. We are left with an excellent introduction to the thinking behind modern quantum field theory.' Dr Todd Huffman, University of Oxford
Review of the hardback: 'He has a talent to render complicated things as simple and clear as possible. His phrasing is very agreeable and effective. ? Bettini provides the reader with a deep insight of the main steps which have brought to the present formulation of the Standard Model, with its essential ingredients, its limits and open questions. His description is fluent and appealing.' Il Nuovo Saggiatore
Review of the hardback: '? provides (postgraduate and advanced undergraduate) students with an admirably clear account of the Standard Model. ? The prose is consistently fluent and interesting, the author's knowledge up-to-date and detailed and the explanations admirably lucid. ? excellent book ?' Contemporary Physics
Review of the hardback: 'This book was a welcome sight to many of us 'youngsters' because it contained a wealth of concentrated information so valuable to the budding experimentalist. ? Bettini's expertise shines brightly throughout the text. ? The choice of topics and the level of detail are excellent ? The book is extremely well-written, topically informative and easy to read - but best of all it is full of physics. ? I enjoyed Bettini's book three times - not unlike a fine wine: the first time when admiring its contents; the second when reading it; and a third time when teaching from it. Bravo Sandro!' James W. Rohlf, CERN Courier

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
