About this book


The book reviews the current status of tau physics. It addresses the properties of the tau lepton and summarizes results achieved with tau leptons in the fields of precision tests of the Standard Model, investigations of the strong interaction and many searches for new physics beyond the scope of the Standard Model.

From the reviews
Physics with Tau Leptons provides a firm basis in theory, in measurement techniques, and in summaries of known results for making full use of recent improvements in quantity and quality of data on the tau. The book will be useful for younger researchers in the field, who don know the history of the hundreds of tau measurements, as well as for older researchers who have forgotten that history.
The book will also be interesting and useful to those who work on the physics of the electron, the muon, or their neutrinos, as well as for those who are searching for heavier leptons. Physics with Tau Leptons belongs in the physics libraries of all universities and research laboratories. Those who have it in their personal libraries will treasure its comprehensiveness and clarity.
Achim Stahl's beautifully written and comprehensive book, Physics with Tau Leptons, comes at a most opportune time for tau physics.
