Providing a complete foundation to comprehend the physics of the microworld, Advanced Particle Physics, Two-Volume Set develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to understand current experiments and make predictions for future experiments. The set brings together a vast array of topics in modern particle physics and distills the material in a rigorous yet accessible manner. All intermediate mathematical steps are derived and numerous application examples help readers gain a thorough, working knowledge of the subject.

The first volume on particles, fields, and quantum electrodynamics covers:

  • The mathematical foundation of quantum field theory
  • The interactions and particles of the Standard Model
  • How accelerators, detectors, and neutrino telescopes are used in particle physics experiments
  • The technique of renormalization in quantum electrodynamics

The second volume on the Standard Model and beyond discusses:

  • The technique of renormalization in quantum chromodynamics (QCD)
  • The status of current QCD experiments
  • Physics beyond the Standard Model, including composite models and a left-right model
  • How solar and atmospheric neutrinos are detected and analyzed

The books in this two-volume set enable readers not only to perform complicated and skilled calculations, but also to propose and elaborate new theories. Each book contains extensive references that offer a comprehensive perspective on the literature and historical development of particle physics.
