It follows this with problems you can't answer and solutions which simply give a value without showing any working, so you can't see how it should have been done.
While, this is fine for people who already know particle physics, I'm guessing that if you're reading this book, you don't already know particle physics.
This is a nice book to read. It explains particle physics intuitive way but it also keeps accuracy. I recommend first year graduate students to read this book.Published 1 month ago by Yoshiki Teramoto

I just took an intro to particle physics class as a fifth year undergraduate who has had all of the usual courses that one is supposed to have to be able to at least gain a glimpse... Read morePublished on October 7, 2002 by Andrew M. Ruland
