The most significant new developments in high energy physics, such as the experimental verification of W+Z<198><198> particles and new tests of the theory of quark interactions update this Third Edition. Professor Perkins provides a balance between experimental and theoretical concepts, with treatment that is informal and empirical, emphasizing the basic theoretical concepts rather than mathematical detail, and key experiments in the field and how they have influenced our thinking. Key experiments include helicity of the neutrino, electric dipole moment of the neutron, the level spectrum of heavy quark-antiquark states, and deep inelastic scattering of leptons by nucleons.

'This edition represents a major rewrite, not just a set of updates. Welcome additions are lengthy chapters on 'physics beyond the standard model' and 'particle physics and cosmology' ... it is about as up to date as can be expected in such a rapidly advancing area æ what sets this book apart from its competitors is that the author has both a very good knowledge of theory and understands experimental techniques and limitations far better than most. His intuitive understanding of the subject matter is very evident. I would predict that another generation of teachers and students will welcome this revised text. It is without a peer at this level. I would certainly use it ...'. Stuart Tovey, The PhysicistBook Description:
This highly-regarded text provides a comprehensive introduction to modern particle physics. Extensively rewritten and updated, but retaining its emphasis on the phenomenological approach, this 4th edition includes developments in elementary particle physics, as well as its connections with cosmology and astrophysics.
