Sinopsis: This book provides a comprehensive overview of modern particle physics accessible to anyone with a true passion for wanting to know how the universe works. We are introduced to the known particles of the world we live in. An elegant explanation of quantum mechanics and relativity paves the way for an understanding of the laws that govern particle physics. These laws are put into action in the world of accelerators, colliders and detectors found at institutions such as CERN and Fermilab that are in the forefront of technical innovation. Real world and theory meet using Feynman diagrams to solve the problems of infinities and deduce the need for the Higgs boson.Facts and Mysteries in Elementary Particle Physics offers an incredible insight from an eyewitness and participant in some of the greatest discoveries in 20th century science. From Einstein's theory of relativity to the elusive Higgs particle, this book will fascinate and educate anyone interested in the world of quarks, leptons and gauge theories.This book also contains many thumbnail sketches of particle physics personalities, including contemporaries as seen through the eyes of the author. Illustrated with pictures, these candid sketches present rare, perceptive views of the characters that populate the field.The Chapter on Particle Theory, in a pre-publication, was termed “superbly lucid” by David Miller in Nature (Vol. 396, 17 Dec. 1998, p. 642).
Book Description: All JSE readers, from the merely curious to the expert in the field of modern particle physics, should read this book ... For the layman, the book is very readable and fascinating. For the expert, it is just plain fun ... I would strongly recommend it to theoretical physics graduate students, even though they may be familiar with much of the content. Like other points of a fine jewel not seen before, Veltman's engaging style of writing will remind students of the value of looking at physics through another's well-trained eye. His style will also pique the layman's interest in the most fundamental discoveries of physics in modern times.
