    DescriptionIn Introduction to Elementary Particles, Second, Revised Edition, author David Griffiths strikes a balance between quantitative rigor and intuitive understanding, using a lively, informal style. The first chapter provides a detailed historical introduction to the subject, while subsequent chapters offer a quantitative presentation of the Standard Model. A simplified introduction to the Feynman rules, based on a "toy" model, helps readers learn the calculational techniques without the complications of spin. It is followed by accessible treatments of quantum electrodynamics, the strong and weak interactions, and gauge theories. New chapters address neutrino oscillations and prospects for physics beyond the Standard Model. The book contains a number of worked examples and many end-of-chapter problems. A complete solution manual is available for instructors. * Revised edition of a well-established text on elementary particle physics * With a number of worked examples and many end-of-chapter problems * Helps the student to master the Feynman rules * Solution manual available for instructors

    Author Information
    David Griffiths is Professor of Physics at the Reed College in Portland, Oregon. After obtaining his PhD in elementary particle theory at Harvard, he taught at several colleges and universities before joining the faculty at Reed in 1978. He specializes in classical electrodynamics and quantum mechanics as well as elementary particles, and has written textbooks on all three subjects.
    Review quote
    A"I'd recommend this book to anyone in the field and anyone lecturing in it. It's wonderful. Reading any section will always yield insights, and you can't go wrong with Griffiths as a guide.A" ( Times Higher Education Supplement, December 2009) A"A clearly written textbook balancing intuitive understanding and mathematical rigour, emphasizing elementary particle theory.A" (Reviews, May 2009)
