This publication offers a finished assessment of recent particle physics available to somebody with a real ardour for desirous to understand how the universe works. we're brought to the identified debris of the area we are living in. a chic rationalization of quantum mechanics and relativity paves the best way for an figuring out of the legislation that govern particle physics. those legislation are placed into motion on this planet of accelerators, colliders and detectors came across at associations resembling CERN and Fermilab which are within the leading edge of technical innovation. actual international and conception meet utilizing Feynman diagrams to unravel the issues of infinities and deduce the necessity for the Higgs boson.

Facts and Mysteries in simple Particle Physics deals an enormous perception from an eyewitness and player in a few of the maximum discoveries in twentieth century technology. From Einstein's idea of relativity to the elusive Higgs particle, this publication will fascinate and train a person attracted to the realm of quarks, leptons and gauge theories.

This booklet additionally comprises many thumbnail sketches of particle physics personalities, together with contemporaries as obvious throughout the eyes of the writer. Illustrated with photographs, those candid sketches current infrequent, perceptive perspectives of the characters that populate the field.

The bankruptcy on Particle idea, in a pre-publication, used to be termed “superbly lucid” via David Miller in Nature (Vol. 396, 17 Dec. 1998, p. 642).
