The first edition of Gauge Field Theories, published in 1985, quickly became widely used in universities and other institutions of higher learning around the world. Written by well-known physicist Paul Frampton, the new edition continues to offer a first-rate mathematical treatment of gauge field theories, while thoroughly updating all chapters to keep pace with developments in the field. Frampton emphasizes formalism rather than experiments and provides sufficient detail for readers wishing to do their own calculations or pursue theoretical physics research. Special features of the Second Edition include:
* Improved, logical organization of the material on gauge invariance, quantization, and renormalization
* Major revision of the chapter on electroweak interactions, incorporating the latest precision data and discovery of the top quark
* Discussions of renormalization group and quantum chromodynamics
* A completely new chapter on model building

Paul H. Frampton is distinguished professor of physics at the University of North Carolina. After he received his D.Phil degree from the University of Oxford, UK, he conducted research at various institutions, among them Harvard University, UCLA and CERN (Geneva, Switzerland). His research focuses on theoretical high energy physics and cosmology; among his topics are inflation, dark matter and dark energy, String Theory, and physics beyond the standard model. Professor Frampton has authored more than 375 papers and has lectured on physics in 30 countries.Review:
