Viktor Jahnke rated it liked it Apr 12, Return to Book Page. Not quantum fields, but rather particles. WileyJan 6, – Science – pages. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Trivia About Quarks and Lepton However, it does use a lot of Quantum Field Theory for the derivation of some important basic results, and does so almost from the very first few pages.

I would have also liked if this textbook were a bit more up to date. Sep 06, Martin rated it it was amazing. User Review – Flag as inappropriate Particle Physics is one of those branches of Physics that can be taught either at a very pedestrian, “stamp-collecting,” level or at the very high level of technical and mathematical sophistication.

Another thing that may be of concern to some is a rather limited number of problems in this textbook. Maha rated it it was ok Nov 06, We have provided “NEW” Academic text books for reasonable prices in all kind of subjects. Yuri Popov rated it really liked it Apr 04, But for new students there needed to be a new approach, called Phenomenology, to learn Particle Physics. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

I’m trying to avoid saying that they are fields because a field is a variable that can be assigned a number or spinor or some such thing; that’s not what I’m getting at here. Moreover it doesn’t give a glance of the experimental part of particle physics which, in my opinion, is as important as theory.

Granted, a lot of what goes by the name of Particle Physics these days is so speculative and out of touch with reality that it absolutely has no place in any textbook, but a few important topics like neutrino masses that have become well established would have been good topics to cover. Particle Physics is one of those branches of Physics that can be taught either at a very pedestrian, “stamp-collecting,” level or at the very high level of technical and mathematical sophistication.

I’d rather suggest it as a reference book for people who already have and advanced background in particle physics and only need a revision of their knowledge. MartinPaperback Be the first to write a review. So as an introductory book it’s not helpful at all.

Quarks and Leptones: An Introductory Course in Modern Particle Physics

Jan 30, Matteo Di giovanni rated it did not like it. Show More Show Less. In the light of that this is perhaps better suited for a graduate-level course than one aimed at the undergraduates, even the more advanced ones.

Furthermore it’s also very dispersive, disorganized and fragmentary. Renato Critelli rated it really liked it Jul 03, This self-contained text describes breakthroughs in our understanding of the structure and interactions of elementary particles. I think a much more suitable textbook for upper level undergraduates would be David Griffiths’ Introduction to Elementary Particles.

Want to Read saving…. As a college Physics professor at a good liberal-arts college I would certainly not use it in any course that I teach.

The Weinberg-Salam Martim and Beyond. Electrodynamics of Spinless Particles. The word “introductory” in the title is extremely misleading because it’s not introductory at all and it assumes prior First of all let me tell you that I’m revewing this book as an undergraduate student who used it, or I may say was strongly recommended to use it by the hlazen, as a course textbook.
