Book Description

Dec 25 2006 0521860369 978-0521860369 1
This book was first published in 2006. The standard model brings together two theories of particle physics in order to describe the interactions of subatomic particles, except those due to gravity. This book uses the standard model as a vehicle for introducing quantum field theory. In doing this the book also introduces much of the phenomenology on which this model is based. The book uses a modern approach, emphasizing effective field theory techniques, and contains brief discussions of some of the main proposals for going beyond the standard model, such as seesaw neutrino masses, supersymmetry, and grand unification. Requiring only a minimum of background material, this book is ideal for graduate students in theoretical and experimental particle physics. It concentrates on getting students to the level of being able to use this theory by doing real calculations with the minimum of formal development, and contains several problems.

Review

"An elegant and complete treatment of the Standard Model at tree level... The first good, modern treatment of the Standard Model, in a format suited for a one or two semester course on particle physics for beginning or graduate students."

3.0 out of 5 stars Not even scientific Nov. 6 2013
By L. Victor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Standard Model is a patchwork; it is a collection of theories under a single name.
Its best part of is the Electro-Weak synthesis, but recent experiments show that neutrinos have mass.
In the original Eletro-Weak Theory, the Nobel-Prized one, neutrinos ( electron, muon and tauon) were massless.
So, something had to be done to cope with the new facts.
It is easy: the solar neutinos have mass, but the Electro-Weak ones do not have it !!!
One kind of neutrinos is a "rotated" version of the other. ( See Griffiths 2nd edition ).
If you can not detect quarks, no problem: they are confined inside the hadrons; if you try to separate them
you simply create new hadrons.
All the Standard Model particles are said to have been experimentally found: the six quarks (never found alone) and even a Higgs-like boson, but several physicists are already speaking of a beyond Standard Model Physics.
Well, it seems that there is, still, a lot of work to do to fix the present theory.
Popper criterium for a scientific theory requires that it must be falsefiable: the theory must predict a result
that,if not found, would reject it.
The way the Particle Physics is being done is no longer a scientific one: no matter what result is experimenatlly
found, it will not cause the rejection of the theory.
