Gauge theory is now recognized as one of the most revolutionary discoveries in physics since the development of quantum mechanics. This primer explains how and why gauge theory has dramatically changed our view of the fundamental forces of nature. The text is designed for the non-specialist. A new, intuitive approach is used to make the ideas of gauge theory accessible to both scientists and students with only a background in quantum mechanics. Emphasis is placed on the physics rather than the formalism.

Emphasis is placed on analogies between the various systems rather than on advanced or specialized aspects, with the purpose of illustrating common ideas within different domains of physics. Starting from a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and classical electromagnetism, the exposition is self-contained and explicitly details all steps of the derivations. The new edition features a substantially new treatment of nucleon pairing.

The first portion of the text is devoted to a review of those aspects of Lie groups necessary for the application of group theory to the physics of particles and fields. The second describes the way in which compact Lie groups are used to construct gauge theories.

Mathematical physics has made enormous strides over the past few decades, with the emergence of many new disciplines and with revolutionary advances in old disciplines. One of the especially interesting features is the link between developments in mathematical physics and in pure mathematics. Many of the exciting advances in mathematics owe their origin to mathematical physics — superstring theory, for example, has led to remarkable progress in geometry — while very pure mathematics, such as number theory, has found unexpected applications. The beginning of a new millennium is an appropriate time to survey the present state of the field and look forward to likely advances in the future. In this book, leading experts give personal views on their subjects and on the wider field of mathematical physics. The topics covered range widely over the whole field, from quantum field theory to turbulence, from the classical three-body problem to non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. Contents: Modern Mathematical Physics: What It Should Be (L D Faddeev)New Applications of the Chiral Anomaly (J Fröhlich & B Pedrini)Fluctuations and Entropy Driven Space–Time Intermittency in Navier–Stokes Fluids (G Gallavotti)Superstrings and the Unification of the Physical Forces (M B Green)Questions in Quantum Physics: A Personal View (R Haag)What Good are Quantum Field Theory Infinities? (R Jackiw)Constructive Quantum Field Theory (A Jaffe)Fourier's Law: A Challenge to Theorists (F Bonetto et al.)The “Corpuscular” Structure of the Spectra of Operators Describing Large Systems (R A Minlos)Vortex- and Magneto-Dynamics — A Topological Perspective (H K Moffatt)Gauge Theory: The Gentle Revolution (L O'Raifeartaigh)Random Matrices as Paradigm (L Pastur)Wavefunction Collapse as a Real Gravitational Effect (R Penrose)Schrödinger Operators in the Twenty-First Century (B Simon)The Classical Three-Body Problem — Where is Abstract Mathematics, Physical Intuition, Computational Physics Most Powerful? (H A Posch & W Thirring)Infinite Particle Systems and Their Scaling Limits (S R S Varadhan)Supersymmetry: A Personal View (B Zumino) Readership: Mathematicians and physicists.

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 comprehensive and well-organized book focusses on the phenomeno-logical aspects of Particle Physics. It strikes a fine balance between those texts that require sophisticated mathematical physics and those that are too elementary. For, unlike in many books on the subject, which give prominence to gauge theories, the attempt here is to lay stress on phenomenology _ an aspect that needs exposure among students of high energy physics.
