Editorial Reviews

Review


"It is unusual to find a volume with so many virtues. Particle Astrophysics is well written, up-to-date, well balances, and always aware of the audience for which it is intendedThe whole work makes good reading and is clear about what is known and where the next horizons lie. For all college libraries."--CHOICE, K. L. Schick


"Perkins (particle and astrophysics, Oxford University) provides background on particle physics and the astrophysics of the early universe in this text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Introductory chapters cover the interactions of elementary particles and their role in the expanding universe. Cosmological asymmetries, dark matter, and dark energy are examined, and final chapters turn to the growth of cosmic structure in high energy cosmic rays and the particle processes in stars. Worked examples, problems, and solutions are included. Some knowledge of quantum mechanics and special relativity is assumed."--SciTech Book News

Format: Paperback
Bought this book a little while ago to help me with an article I wrote in one of the local popular science magazines. I have only read parts of it (that concerned the article metioned above) and found it to be quite readable and well structured. I was not a great fan of the authors previous book - Introduction to High Energy Physics - as a postgraduate student since I felt that it lacked the depth I was looking for, so I was a bit skeptical concerning this book as well. Nevertheless, it was of great help to me and the parts that I read were well written. This is not a "heavy" book and it could prove to be of interest for readers with a background in university level Physics without needing a lot of Maths to understand the concepts.

Only for brainiacs. Don't try this if you haven't finis college physics. But, if you have, then by all means.
