This modern introduction to particle physics equips students with the skills needed to develop a deep and intuitive understanding of the physical theory underpinning contemporary experimental results. The fundamental tools of particle physics are introduced and accompanied by historical profiles charting the development of the field. Theory and experiment are closely linked, with descriptions of experimental techniques used at CERN accompanied by detail on the physics of the Large Hadron Collider and the strong and weak forces that dominate proton collisions. Recent experimental results are featured, including the discovery of the Higgs boson. Equations are supported by physical interpretations, and end-of-chapter problems are based on datasets from a range of particle physics experiments including dark matter, neutrino, and collider experiments. A solutions manual for instructors is available online. Additional features include worked examples throughout, a detailed glossary of key terms, appendices covering essential background material, and extensive references and further reading to aid self-study, making this an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduates in physics.

New book

The purpose of this book is to cover all aspects of Bi-2223 superconducting wires from fundamental research, fabrication process to applications. This book contains many chapters written by distinguished experts in the world.

New ebook

The authors have put forth great efforts in gathering present day knowledge about different objects within our solar system and universe. This book features the most current information on the subject with information acquired from noted scientists in this area. The main objective is to convey the importance of the subject and provide detailed information on the physical makeup of our planetary system and technologies used for research. Information on educational projects has also been included in the Radio Astronomy chapters.This information is a real plus for students and educators considering a career in Planetary Science or for increasing their knowledge about our planetary system

Sciences in the 21st century are repeatedly described as data-intensive sciences. In recent years this also applies to the humanities. However, data-intensive sciences are only more than a promise if they can be modelled. To this end, data must form a representative and balanced corpus, it must be possible to formalise, visualise and re-use data. Libraries have large quantities of reliable data that can be condensed into corpora, formalised and shared. Libraries thus become an essential part of a data-intensive humanities. My talk outlines the new ways of integrating libraries into research processes in the humanities.


Gerhard Lauer is professor of Digital Humanities at the University of Basel. After studying German language and literature, philosophy, musicology and Jewish studies, he received his doctorate with a thesis on the history of science in exile and wrote his second book on the literary history of early modern Judaism. From 2002 to 2017 he taught German Philology at the University of Göttingen, since 2017 Digital Humanities in Basel. His most recent publication are "Wilhelm von Humboldt. Schriften zur Bildung" (2017), "Johann Friedrich Blumenbach. Race and Natural History 1750-1850", (2019, edited together with Nicolaas Rupke), "Lesen im digitalen Zeitalter" (in print)
