This is the first quantitative treatment of elementary particle theory that is accessible to undergraduates. Using a lively, informal writing style, the author strikes a balance between quantitative rigor and intuitive understanding. The first chapter provides a detailed historical introduction to the subject. Subsequent chapters offer a consistent and modern presentation, covering the quark model, Feynman diagrams, quantum electrodynamics, and gauge theories. A clear introduction to the Feynman rules, using a simple model, helps readers learn the calculational techniques without the complications of spin. And an accessible treatment of QED shows how to evaluate tree-level diagrams. Contains an abundance of worked examples and many end-of-chapter problems.

This edition is an update of Griffith's original particle physics text, published in 1987, updating the physics with all the recent changes to the Standard Model. The main feature of IEP is that it is NOT a Quantum Field Theory book. This text uses the results of QFT, but does not derive them. It can therefore be most efficiently used as a bridge between Quantum Mechanics, and QFT.The math required is no more onerous than that required for Griffiths Intro to QM text.more
