QCD and the Electroweak Theory, Third Edition

This is the second volume of the third edition of a successful text, now substantially enlarged and updated to reflect developments over the last decade in the curricula of university courses and in particle physics research. Volume I covered relativistic quantum mechanics, electromagnetism as a gauge theory, and introductory quantum field theory, and ended with the formulation and application of quantum electrodynamics (QED), including renormalization. Building on these foundations, this second volume provides a complete, accessible, and self-contained introduction to the remaining two gauge theories of the standard model of particle physics: quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the electroweak theory. The treatment significantly extends that of the second edition in several important respects. Simple ideas of group theory are now incorporated into the discussion of non-Abelian symmetries. Two new chapters have been added on QCD, one devoted to the renormalization group and scaling violations in deep inelastic scattering and the other to non-perturbative aspects of QCD using the lattice (path-integral) formulation of quantum field theory; the latter is also used to illuminate various aspects of renormalization theory, via analogies with condensed matter systems. Three chapters treat the fundamental topic of spontaneous symmetry breaking: the (Bogoliubov) superfluid and the (BCS) superconductor are studied in some detail; one chapter is devoted to the implications of global chiral symmetry breaking in QCD; and one to the breaking of local SU(2)xU(1) symmetry in the electroweak theory. Weak interaction phenomenology is extended to include discussion of discrete symmetries and of the possibility that neutrinos are Majorana (rather than Dirac) particles. Most of these topics are normally found only in more advanced texts, and this is the first book to treat them in a manner accessible to the wide readership that the previous editions have attracted.

«In diesem Band sind Arbeiten gesammelt, die ich zwischen 1976 und 1992 geschrieben habe – autobiographische Skizzen, wissenschaftsphilosophische Überlegungen und Versuche zu erklären, warum mich die Physik und das Universum so faszinieren. (...) Da diese Arbeiten über einen Zeitraum von sechzehn Jahren entstanden, geben sie den jeweiligen Stand meines Wissens wieder, das sich, wie ich hoffe, im Laufe der Jahre erweitert hat. Ich nenne deshalb die Daten und die Anlässe, für die die Texte geschrieben wurden. Da jeder als in sich abgeschlossene Einheit konzipiert war, kommt es unweigerlich zu einem gewissen Maß an Wiederholungen. Ganz ist mir der Versuch, sie zu beseitigen, nicht gelungen. (...) Die wissenschaftlichen Artikel in diesem Buch sind in der Überzeugung geschrieben worden, daß das Universum von einer Ordnung bestimmt wird, die wir heute nur teilweise erkennen, die wir aber in einer nicht allzu fernen Zukunft möglicherweise vollständig verstehen werden. Es mag sein, daß diese Hoffnung ein Luftschloß ist; vielleicht gibt es keine endgültige Theorie, und selbst wenn, so bleibt sie uns unter Umständen verschlossen. Aber es ist auf jeden Fall besser, nach umfassendem Verständnis zu streben, als am menschlichen Geist zu verzweifeln.» Stephen Hawking 31. März 1993

Werden wir irgendwann durch Wände gehen können? In Raumschiffen mit Lichtgeschwindigkeit zu fernen Planeten reisen? Wird es uns möglich sein, Gedanken zu lesen? Oder Gegenstände allein mit unserer Willenskraft zu bewegen? Bislang waren derlei Fähigkeiten Science-Fiction- und Fantasy-Helden vorbehalten. Aber müssen sie deshalb auf immer unerreichbar bleiben? Der renommierte Physiker Michio Kaku zeigt uns, was nach dem gegenwärtigen Stand der Wissenschaft möglich ist und was vielleicht in Jahrhunderten oder Jahrtausenden realisierbar sein wird. Seine Ergebnisse überraschen – und eröffnen faszinierende Perspektiven auf die Welt von morgen. «Eine großartige Quelle der Wissenschaftsunterhaltung.» DIE ZEIT «Man wird geradezu hineingezogen in die Welt der kleinsten Teilchen und größten Dimensionen – und stellt mit Verwunderung fest, dass es trotz der phantastischen Ideen letztlich um den eigenen Alltag geht.» Saarländischer Rundfunk

25th Anniversary Edition

Twenty-five years ago, Michael Green, John Schwarz, and Edward Witten wrote two volumes on string theory. Published during a period of rapid progress in this subject, these volumes were highly influential for a generation of students and researchers. Despite the immense progress that has been made in the field since then, the systematic exposition of the foundations of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. Volume 2 is concerned with the evaluation of one-loop amplitudes, the study of anomalies and phenomenology. It examines the low energy effective field theory analysis of anomalies, the emergence of the gauge groups E8 x E8 and SO(32) and the four-dimensional physics that arises by compactification of six extra dimensions. Featuring a new Preface setting the work in context in light of recent advances, this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in high energy physics and astrophysics, as well as mathematicians.

Volume 2 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical introduction to the two non-Abelian quantum gauge field theories of the Standard Model of particle physics: quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the Glashow-Salam-Weinberg (GSW) electroweak theory. This volume covers much of the experimental progress made in the last ten years. A new chapter on CP violation and oscillation phenomena describes CP violation in B-meson decays as well as the main experiments that have led to our current knowledge of mass-squared differences and mixing angles in neutrino physics. Exploring a new era in particle physics, this edition discusses one of the most recent and exciting breakthroughs—the discovery of a boson with properties consistent with those of the Standard Model Higgs boson. It also updates many other topics, including jet algorithms, lattice QCD, effective Lagrangians, and three-generation quark mixing and the CKM matrix. New to the Fourth Edition New chapter on CP violation and oscillations in mesonic and neutrino systems New section on three-generation quark mixing and the CKM matrix Improved discussion of two-jet cross section in electron-positron annihilation New section on jet algorithms Recent lattice QCD calculations with dynamical fermions New section on effective Lagrangians for spontaneously broken chiral symmetry, including the three-flavor extension, meson mass relations, and chiral perturbation theory Update of asymptotic freedom Discussion of the historic discovery of a Higgs-like boson The authors discuss the main conceptual points of the theories, detail many practical calculations of physical quantities from first principles, and compare these quantitative predictions with experimental results, helping readers improve both their calculation skills and physical insight.
