Editorial Review

Product Description
This highly regarded textbook for advanced undergraduates provides a comprehensive introduction to modern particle physics. Coverage emphasizes the balance between experiment and theory. It places stress on the phenomenological approach and basic theoretical concepts rather than rigorous mathematical detail. Donald Perkins also details recent developments in elementary particle physics, as well as its connections with cosmology and astrophysics. A number of key experiments are also identified along with a description of how they have influenced the field.Perkins presents most of the material in the context of the Standard Model of quarks and leptons.He also fully explores the shortcomings of this model and new physics beyond its compass (such as supersymmetry, neutrino mass and oscillations, GUTs and superstrings). The text includes many problems and a detailed and annotated further reading list. The volume will also provide a solid foundation for graduate study. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars horrible book
For those who have had to suffer through Perkins before switching to Griffiths, I gotta say that Perkins book will really make your life miserable. This books is terribly unorganized; speaks using concepts before explaining what they are. Perkins book is horrible compared to Griffiths. I don't know if it is the fact of how bad Perkins was that makes think that Griffiths book is fantastic, but I'm really glad I changed from this book, otherwise I would have miserably failed my particle physics class.

4-0 out of 5 stars Be prepared before reading this.
This is a book whose content is close to that of most 'traditional' undergraduate courses on particle physics. Yet, you will probably be tempted to throw it in the dustbin after a few pages unless you have trained yourself into thinking that it's better reading it than failing your exam and have already read a book like Giffiths' before, where you will find some good theoretical basis for all this stuff.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not horrible for what it is, but you can do better
Basically, If you want theoretical approach stop reading this and buy griffiths' book, it's a lot better.
I'm using Perkins for a course mainly made up of senior undergraduates.First of all, a lot of the other reviewers have ripped the book to shreds, and most of their complaints are valid.I'd like to point out that this book actually attempts a fairly difficult task of introducing relatively advanced concepts which require qft, to students without any background in field theory.
The long and the short of it is... Perkins' book is geared for learning with a phenomonological, experimental approach. This results in a lot of hand waving, and not many mathematical or theoretical insights.If you're expecting these things, the book will be dissapointing.
All of this aside, there are some major flaws in the book.First of all, it kind of lacks on organization.There are a lot of charts, tables and graphs thrown about at random, and with little reasoning or thought.This makes Perkins' fairly useless as a reference, since you might have to look at four or more different charts to find out the relevant properties of a given particle.
My other major complaint, is that Perkins uses a lot of jargon without sufficiently introducing the terminology.While, this is fine for people who already know particle physics, I'm guessing that if you're reading this book, you don't already know particle physics.
Finally, despite being a fourth addition, there are still a bunch of misprints/omissions.For example, there's a question (which i conveniently had for a homework assignment) totally based on a concept not mentioned anywhere within the book.Google searches on the topic led only to obscure and inaccessible papers.
Basically, if you have to use this book for a course be prepared to read and re-read each section of it, and to suppliment with other books.I'd suggest buying griffiths along with it, event if you're not into the whole theory thing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Introduction to Experimental Methods
As many previous reviewers have already pointed out, this book is not nearly as good an introduction to theoretical high energy physics as Griffiths' "Introduction to Elementary Particles". The primary reason for this is that Perkins' book was never meant to be read as a theoretical course in the first place. This is why Griffiths introduces Feynman rules and gamma matrices near the middle of the book and uses them extensively throughout the rest; Perkins mentions them in passing in the first chapter and then completely forgets them. In Perkins you will find little rigorous math, but a lot of experimental physics. If you want to understand the theory behind T violation, use Griffiths. If you want to know how physicists measured the electric dipole momentum of the neutron ( thus putting an upper limit on the magnitude of T violation ), Perkins will explain it in detail, together with the schematics of the apparatus they used.
Overall, this book does not fit its title well - it is not a good introduction to high energy physics ( unless you are so totally averse to math that you can't manage Griffiths or Peskin/Shroeder ). However, it has its own purpose - that is, to teach experimental methods in high energy physics. It probably should be studied after Griffiths by those who are interested in experimental side of particle physics.

1-0 out of 5 stars A absolutely horrible introduction to High Energy Physics
I used Perkin's book for a one sememester 500 level graduate course.I honestly believe that of the 20+ books that I have used in undergrad and grad school, that this is the absolute worst text I have encountered.The equations in the text are mearly thrown in without the slightest justification or hint of the possible method of derivation.If you would truly understand the significance of the equations, then you would need a background knowledge that I can hardly believe anybody looking for an introduction to high energy physics could have.However, this is far from its biggest pitfall.The book is choppy to read.There are almost no quantitative examples and yet the questions are mostly quantitative.I am sure that I could think of more specifics dislikes, but I think that the reader has seen my opion.To anybody considering buying this text I suggest instead purchasing griffiths "introduction to elementary particles."My class was so displeased with perkins text that our professor has promised to switch to griffiths next year.To reiterate....Perkins book is the epitome of bad writing.I give my apologies to the author, but I don't want others to waste their time and money on this text.Buy Griffiths Book, it is good! ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Originally published in 1977, this book presents an extended introduction to the theory of hadrons, the elementary particles which occur in the atomic nucleus. The main emphasis is on the theory of the complex angular momentum plane 'Regge theory', which has grown from Regge's demonstration in 1959 that it is useful to regard angular momentum as a complex variable when discussing solutions of the Schrodinger equation for non-relativistic potential scattering. This theory helps to classify the many different particles which have been discovered in recent years, to explain the forces between these particles and to predict the results of high-energy scattering experiments. Regge theory thus serves as a unifying concept drawing together many different features of high-energy physics. This monograph is intended primarily for research students just beginning to concern themselves with particle physics, but more experienced workers will also find much to interest them in this detailed survey of the basic ideas and results of Regge theory. ...

This book is a superb introduction to the field of acclereator physics.Starting with a basic knowledge of relativity and E&M is all that is necessary.Edwards and Syphers do a great job of"building" anaccelerator in their book and using operating parameters of real worldaccelerators (mostly the Tevatron) for their numerical examples.

Editorial Review

Product Description
The progress made in particle physics during the last two decades of the 20th century has led to the formulation of the so-called Standard Model of elementary particles and its quantitative experimental test. This work presents that progress, and also includes chapters which provide background on modern particle physics. Particle physics forms an essential part of the physics curriculum. This book seeks to incorporate all the topics for a unified treatment of the subject. It provides reference material for researchers in both theoretical and experimental particle physics. It is designed as a semester course for senior undergraduates and for graduate students. Formal quantum field theory is not used. A knowledge of non-relativistic quantum mechanics is required for some parts of the book, but for the remaining parts familiarity with the Dirac equation and Feynman rules is essential. However, some of these topics are included in an appendix. In this second edition, many chapters (for example, on electroweak unification) have been revised to bring them up to date.In particular, the chapters on neutrino physics, particle mixing and CP violation, and weak decays of heavy flavours have been rewritten incorporating new material and new data since the first edition. The heavy quark effective theory has been included. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Supersymmetry or SUSY, one of the most beautiful recent ideas of physics, predicts sparticles existing as superpartners of particles. This book gives a theoretical and phenomenological account of sparticles. Starting from a basic level, it provides a comprehensive, pedagogical and user-friendly treatment of the subject of four-dimensional N=1 supersymmetry as well as its observational aspects in high energy physics and cosmology. Part One of the book introduces the requisite formal theory, preceded by a discussion of the naturalness problem. Part Two describes the supersymmetrization of the Standard Model of particle interactions as well as the origin of soft supersymmetry breaking and how it can be mediated from higher energies. Search strategies for sparticles, supersymmetric Higgs bosons, nonminimal scenarios and cosmological implications are some of the other topics covered. Novel features of the book include a dictionary between two-component and four-component spinor notation, a step-by-step derivation of the nonrenormalization theorem, an extended discussion of supersymmetric renormalization group evolution, detailed analyses of minimal and nonminimal models with gravity (including anomaly) mediated and gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking as well as elaborate self-contained presentations of collider signals of sparticles plus supersymmetric Higgs bosons and of supersymmetric cosmology. Appendices list all Feynman rules for the vertices of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. ... Read more

Product Description
Neutrino physics remains one of the most exciting fields of fundamental physics today. The neutrino's position at the intersection of particle physics, astrophysics, and nuclear physics ensures continuing interest in the subject. Major activities at accelerators like Fermilab, KEK and CERN, in addition to underground facilities like Gran Sasso, Kamioka and Sudbury, continue to enhance our understanding of the origins and properties of neutrinos, and their implications for the Standard Model and cosmology.

Neutrino Physics provides an up to date and comprehensive introduction to the subject as well as an invaluable resource for researchers in physics and astrophysics. Starting with a brief historical overview the author proceeds to review fundamental neutrino properties, the neutrino mass question, and their place within and beyond the Standard Model. The final chapters examine the role of neutrinos in modern astroparticle physics, cosmology and the dark matter problem. The book concludes with a summary of the current status of neutrino physics and the implications of recent results.

Written to be accessible to readers from different backgrounds in nuclear, particle or astrophysics and with a detailed reference list, this title will be essential for any researcher or advanced student who needs to understand modern neutrino physics. ... Read more
