Beyond the Nanoworld: Quarks, Leptons, and Gauge Bosons by H. G. Dosch

By H. G. Dosch

past the area of atoms, at scales smaller than the smallest nuclei, a brand new international comes into view, populated through an array of colourful common debris: unusual and charmed quarks, muons and neutrinos, gluons and photons, etc, all interacting in superbly elaborate styles.

Beyond the Nanoworld tells the tale of ways this new realm was once came across. From the 1st discoveries of subatomic constitution to the present-day hunt for the Higgs particle, the reader is invited to persist with the dual branches of experimental and theoretical study as they wind during the 20th century, culminating within the so much winning actual concept of all time: the traditional version of particle physics.
