About this book


This book begins with relativistic quantum mechanics, which lays the foundation for the rest of the text. The phenomenology and physics of fundamental interactions are emphasized through a detailed discussion of the empirical fundamentals of unified theories of strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions. The principles of local gauge theories and the minimal standard model of the fundamental interactions are developed and characteristic applications are worked out. Further possibilities and the theory of interactions of elementary particles probing complex nuclei are also discussed. Numerous exercises with solutions make this an ideal text for graduate courses on quantum mechanics and elementary particle physics. "I very much enjoyed reading this book because great care has gone into its preparation ... . The author has achieved a good balance between the presentation of mathematical material and its use in the description of physical phenomena." (Physics Today)
