Votre note
This highly regarded text provides an up-to date and comprehensive introduction to modern particle physics. Extensively rewritten and updated, this 4th edition includes all the recent developments in elementary particle physics, as well as its connections with cosmology and astrophysics. As in previous editions, the balance between experiment and theory is continually emphasised. The stress is on the phenomenological approach and basic theoretical concepts rather than rigorous mathematical detail. Short descriptions are given of some of the key experiments in the field, and how they have influenced our thinking. Although most of the material is presented in the context of the Standard Model of quarks and leptons, the shortcomings of this model and new physics beyond its compass, such as supersymmetry, neutrino mass and oscillations, GUTs and super-strings, are also discussed. The text includes many problems and a detailed and annotated further reading list. This text is suitable for final-year physics undergraduates and for graduate students studying experimental or theoretical particle physics.

Biographie de Donald-H Perkins

The author is Emeritus Professor of Physics in Oxford University. After receiving his first degree and Ph.D. at Imperial College, University of London, he joined Bristol University as G. A. Wills Research Associate, later becoming a lecturer and reader in physics. He spent the year 1955-56 and part of 1961 at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, University of California, and in 1966 became Professor of Elementary Particle Physics at Oxford. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of London and his awards include the Guthrie Medal of the Institute of Physics, the Holweck Medal of the Société Française de Physique and the Royal Medal of the Royal Society. His early experimental research was in studies of high energy cosmic rays. Later he moved to the field of neutrino physics, where he was involved in the discovery and early studies of neutral weak currents, of the quark substructure of nucleons and of interquark interactions (quantum chromodynamics), using accelerator neutrino beams. Professor Perkins has served on the UK Science and Engineering Research Council, as a member and chairman of the CERN Scientific Policy Committee, and as UK delegate to the CERN Council. He is an author of Study of Elementary Particles by the Photographic Method published by Pergamon Press (with C. F. Powell and P. H. Fowler).
