Review from the first edition 'I am very impressed with this book. It is a beautifully clear and concise introductory text ... for a first course in the basic physics of the standard model this book would be an excellent choice. Both experimental and theoretical students would benefit from it.' Neil Turok, The Observatory
'It is fun to read this book!' Evelyn Weimar-Woods, Zentralblatt für Mathematik
'... a very clearly written and recommendable introduction to the Standard Model of particle physics.' The Observatory
The new edition of this introductory graduate textbook provides a concise, accessible introduction to the Standard Model. It has been updated to account for the theory of strong interactions, and observations on matter-antimatter asymmetry. Each chapter ends with problems, with hints to selected problems at the end of the book.
