Introduction to the standard model and beyond : quantum field theory, symmetries and phenomenology

by Raby, Stuart.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2021Description: xvi, 619p.ISBN: 9781108494199.Subject(s): Standard model (Nuclear physics) | Quantum theory | SCIENCE / Physics / Nuclear | SCIENCE / Physics / NuclearDDC classification: 539.72 R114I Summary: "The Standard Model of particle physics is an amazingly successful theory describing the fundamental particles and forces of nature. This text, written for a two-semester graduate course on the Standard Model, develops a practical understanding of the theoretical concepts it's built upon, to prepare students to enter research. The author takes a historical approach to demonstrate to students the process of discovery which is often overlooked in other textbooks, presenting quantum field theory and symmetries as the necessary tools for describing and understanding the Standard Model. He develops these tools using a basic understanding of quantum mechanics and classical field theory, such as Maxwell's electrodynamics, before discussing the important role that Noether's theorem and conserved charges play in the theory. Worked examples feature throughout the text, while homework exercises are included for the first five parts, with solutions available online for instructors. Inspired by the author's own teaching experience, suggestions for independent research topics have been provided for the second-half of the course, which students can then present to the rest of the class"--
