No prior knowledge of elementary particles neither of quantum field theories is assumed. Over problems, including sixty that are new to this edition, encourage students to apply the theory themselves. The book is extremely well-written, topically informative and easy to read – but best of all it is full of physics On top of all this, the volume is complemented by an exhaustive online material on the Cambridge University Press website, addressed and reserved to physics teachers: Dispatched from the UK in 3 business days When will my order arrive?
Important experiments and the theory linked to them are highlighted, helping students appreciate how key ideas were developed. The Best Books of Levertijd We doen er alles aan om dit artikel op tijd te bezorgen.

This novel feature of the second edition makes it even more attractive. To this purpose the author takes care of the crucial experimental aspects, describing detectors and their limitations, and nicely seeks for balance between historical perspective and simplicity.
The author examines leptons, hadrons and quarks, before presenting the dynamics and the elemenhary properties of the charges of the different forces. More specific changes with respect bettii the first edition concern:. For this second volume, as a second edition of the first one, the main design principles remain the same.

The chapter on neutrino physics has been completely revised, and the final chapter summarises the limits of the standard model and introduces students to what lies beyond. Let us hope that Run 2 at the LHC will necessitate the writing of a third edition of this wonderful book.

Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics
How many copies would you like to buy? The chapter on neutrino physics has been completely revised, and the final chapter summarises the limits of the standard model and introduces students to what lies beyond.
We are left with an excellent introduction to the thinking behind modern quantum field theory. Bettini has a talent to render betfini things as simple and clear as possible I enjoyed Bettini’s book three times – not unlike a fine wine: It is very well presented and Recensie s ‘I liked the first edition very much, and used it for my classes.
Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics (ebook)
Each chapter ends in the exercises, and solutions to some problems are included in the book. The prose is consistently fluent and interesting, the author’s knowledge up to date inttoduction detailed and the explanations admirably lucid. The standard model; With the eyes of a highly skilful and cultured experimentalist, the accurate selection of subjects he presents to us denotes his passion for subnuclear physics, the beauty of which he never fails to point out.
While most texts on this subject emphasise theoretical aspects, this textbook contains examples of basic experiments, before going into the theory.
I like the second edition even better The book is meant to be a presentation at introductory level of subnuclear physics to undergraduate physics students, not necessarily to those specialising in the field.
Complete solutions are available to instructors at www. Bettini’s expertise shines brightly throughout the text Best of all, for the current version, there are some timely additions, most notably the discovery of the Higgs boson and an expanded chapter on neutrino oscillations Bettini provides the reader with a deep insight of the main steps which have brought to the present formulation of the Standard Model, with its essential ingredients, its limits and open questions.
The contents of the book have been subject to an overall update. About Alessandro Bettini Alessandro Bettini is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Padua, Italy, where he has been teaching experimental, general and particle physics for forty years. The book presents the basic ideas of the Standard Model at an elementary level, it includes only experimentally well-established results, showing how the theoretical building blocks are supported by experimental evidence.
Over problems, including sixty that are new to this edition, encourage students to apply the theory themselves. There are many gems within these pages In winkelwagen Op verlanglijstje.
