Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and by Ken J. Barnes

By Ken J. Barnes

In response to the author’s well-established classes, workforce idea for a standard version of Particle Physics and past explores using symmetries via descriptions of the thoughts of Lie teams and Lie algebras. The textual content develops the types, theoretical framework, and mathematical instruments to appreciate those symmetries.

After linking symmetries with conservation legislation, the booklet works during the arithmetic of angular momentum and extends operators and services of classical mechanics to quantum mechanics. It then covers the mathematical framework for distinctive relativity and the inner symmetries of the traditional version of basic particle physics. within the bankruptcy on Noether’s theorem, the writer explains how Lagrangian formalism offers a common framework for the quantum mechanical interpretation of symmetry ideas. He then examines electromagnetic, vulnerable, and powerful interactions; spontaneous symmetry breaking; the elusive Higgs boson; and supersymmetry. He additionally introduces new options in keeping with extending space–time into dimensions defined through anticommuting coordinates.

Designed for graduate and complex undergraduate scholars in physics, this article presents succinct but whole insurance of the gang idea of the symmetries of the traditional version of common particle physics. it's going to support scholars comprehend present wisdom concerning the average version in addition to the physics that in all likelihood lies past the normal version.
