An excellent introduction to quantum field theory and the Standard paricle. Particle Physics is one of those branches of Physics that can be taught either at a very pedestrian, “stamp-collecting,” level or at the very high level of technical and mathematical sophistication.
In the light of that this is perhaps better suited for a graduate-level course than one aimed at the undergraduates, even the more advanced ones. Granted, a lot of what goes by the name of Particle Physics these days is so speculative and out of touch with reality that it absolutely has no place in any textbook, but a few important topics like neutrino masses that have become well established would have been good topics to cover.

At that time, Particle Physics was growing with many ideas in theoretical physics between 30’s to 70’s. I think this notation i. In the middle of important demonstrations it continuosly proposes you theoretical pnysics which you can’t solve because they’re about things you still need to learn and the results are fundamental for that demonstrations that will follow so you loose a lot of time in trying to solve them when a clear, straight demonstration would be much more clear and helpful in a book defined “introductory” Adarsh Mishra rated it really liked it Jul 15, Eduardo rated it really liked it Feb 15, Dick Francis Literature, Modern Books.
For Phenomenology this book is the one you can start, and even go to some few papers and work on some serious subjects under supervisory of your professor in Master degree. Hazlen for new students there needed to be a new approach, called Phenomenology, to learn Particle Physics.
All of this can still be achieved by going to supplementary materials, and the lack of these topics in no way diminishes the quality of this very solid textbook. James Monks rated it liked it Aug 09, As a college Physics professor at a good liberal-arts college I would certainly not use it in any course that I teach. The word “introductory” in the title is extremely misleading because it’s not introductory at all and it assumes prior advanced knowledge to the subject it should introduce, like elements of quantum field theories wich are completely ignored.

Do Halzen and Martin use p and n to represent complex numbers? Till know you can find it great, if you wou Halzen and Martin’s book has written in 80’s.

There are a couple ways I can think of to interpret it: Trivia About Quarks and Lepton Jobes which both should do the job pretty well. It provides students of theoretical or experimental physics with the background material to grasp the significance of these developments.
