Tim rated it liked it Aug 22, It presents results without telling you how to get them and without clearly explaing their meaning. Thomas Fan rated it it was amazing Dec 04, No ratings or reviews yet. 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.
Catherine rated it really liked it Aug 18, Refresh and try again.
There is very little room in the middle, and therefore it is very hard to come up with a suitable textbook that will do justice to the field and yet be accessible enough for upper-level undergraduates or beginning graduate students. Halaen self-contained text describes breakthroughs in our understanding of the structure and interactions of elementary particles.
Books by Francis Nartin. Till know you can find it great, if you would like to start a career in Particle Physics which has an important way to explore these days. 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.
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. The Weinberg Salam Model and Beyond. You may also like. 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 professor, as a course textbook.
As a college Physics professor at a good liberal-arts college I would certainly not use it in any course that I teach. Puysics Popov rated it really liked it Apr 04, Want to Read saving…. Tari rated it really liked it Oct 11, Eduardo rated it really liked it Feb 15, Gabriel rated it liked it Mar 30, Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone.
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.

If you’re looking for a clear and complete book in order to gain the basis of particle physics i’d suggest “Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics” by Alessandro Bettini or “Nuclear and Particle Physics” by W. In the middle of important demonstrations it continuosly proposes you theoretical exercises which you can’t solve because they’re about things you still need to learn and the results are fundamental for that demonstrations that will follow so you loose a lot of time in trying to solve them when a clear, straight demonstration would be much more clear and helpful in a book defined “introductory” Not at all as an introductory book.
Karpur Shukla rated it it was amazing Feb 19, Best Selling in Textbooks, Education See all. Do Halzen and Martin use p and n to represent complex numbers? I think this notation i. Post as a guest Name. Grayson Williams rated it it was amazing Feb 08, I wrote ” or really, their corresponding fields ” to acknowledge that particles cannot truly mix, only fields can mix. David Lin rated it it was amazing Jul 01, 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.

All of this can still halzfn achieved by going to supplementary materials, and the lack of these topics in no way diminishes the quality of this very solid textbook.
Conor Henderson rated it really liked it Jan 05, A nice derive from Antiparticles in chapter 3 to parficle end.
The word “introductory” in the title is extremely misleading because it’s not introductory at all and it assumes prior advanced knowledge to the subject it should introduce, like elements of quantum field theories wich are completely ignored. John rated it really liked it Jun 15, Thanks for telling us about the problem.
