Product Description
Review
A fascinating journey into the bizarre, subatomic world of particle physics. PhysOrg.com 2004 Quantum field theory, group theory, Lie algebras, internal symmetry spaces and gauge theory. [Schumm] does a remarkably good job of explaining all this, with a style that is mercifully plain.  Peter de Groot New Scientist 2005 Explores the world of particle physics in terms laymen can understand. Santa Cruz Sentinel 2005 I expect that any physics undergraduate, bewildered by textbooks and lectures, would find this a delight.  Stephen Battersby New Scientist 2005 One of several recently published books attempting to provide for interested nonphysicists a relatively nonmathematical account of what has come to be called the standard model of particle physics... Schumm's treatment is perhaps more detailed. Choice 2005 This is definitely a book for your Christmas list, and if it doesn't excite your mathematics colleagues too, they'll miss a treat.  Rick Marshall School Science Review 2006 This book is beautifully written and is a didactic masterpiece.  David Watts Science and Christian Belief 2006
