Derived from a course given at the University of Maryland for advanced graduate students, this book deals with some of the latest developments in our attempts to construct a unified theory of the fundamental interactions of nature. Among the topics covered are spontaneous symmetry breaking, grand unified theories, supersymmetry, and supergravity. The book starts with a quick review of elementary particle theory and continues with a discussion of composite quarks, leptons, Higgs bosons, and CP violation; it concludes with consideration of supersymmetric unification schemes, in which bosons and…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Derived from a course given at the University of Maryland for advanced graduate students, this book deals with some of the latest developments in our attempts to construct a unified theory of the fundamental interactions of nature. Among the topics covered are spontaneous symmetry breaking, grand unified theories, supersymmetry, and supergravity. The book starts with a quick review of elementary particle theory and continues with a discussion of composite quarks, leptons, Higgs bosons, and CP violation; it concludes with consideration of supersymmetric unification schemes, in which bosons and leptons are considered in some sense equivalent. The second edition is updated and corrected and contains new chapters on recent developments.

Rezensionen
From the reviews of the third edition: "....The book covers a very wide range of phenomena within the large subject of grand unification and supersymmetry in elementary particle physics. Almost every possible development in the field is included here."-Mathreviews.com "An extremely useful resource for graduate students and researchers, this textbook, which was derived from a course given at the University of Maryland for advanced graduate students deals with some of the latest developments in our attempts to construct a unified theory of nature's fundamental interactions. ... I can safely recommend this textbook, which gives a fairly complete and self-contained theoretical treatment of the subject." (Georges Kohnen, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (2), 2005)
