The first volume of the Brandeis University Summer Institute lecture series of on theories of interacting elementary particles, consisting of four sets of lectures. Every summer since Brandeis University has conducted a lecture series centered on various areas of theoretical physics. The areas are sufficiently broad to interest a large number of physicists and the lecturers are among. Elementary Particle Physics Lecture Notes. This note explains the following topics: Elementary particles, Order of Magnitude Calculations, Reaction rates and Cross Section, The Electromagnetic Interaction, The Weak Interaction, STRANGENESS, Quark Mixing, Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking, the Higgs Scalar, Neutrino Oscillation, Neutrino Experiments and The Muon Anomaly. Notes of Elementary Particle Physics is a seven-chapter text that conveys the ideas on the state of elementary particle physics. This book emerged from an introductory course of 30 lectures on the subject given to first-year graduate students at the University of Liverpool. Protons are not elementary particles, but rather "large", complicated bound states of quarks and gluons tightly bound together by the strong interaction. One aim is to get the quarks or gluons from one proton beam to collide "hard" with those of the other proton beam and produce in-teresting new particles.

The proton has lost this status today, or better some 40 years ago. In a beautiful interplay between theory advances and experiments the list of particles grows rapidly, adding the neutron, the positron and the neutrino in   The concept of fundamental, indivisible particles goes back to the ancient Greeks (a concept known as "atomism"). In the 20th century, physicists began exploring the goings on at the smallest levels of matter, and among their most startling modern discoveries was the amount of different particles in the universe.

The areas are sufficiently broad to interest a. • Charged particles are emitted from the atomic nucleus at high energy in some nuclear transformations. These include alpha and beta particles. • Uncharged particles (neutrons) are produced by fission or other nuclear reactions. • Both types of particles produce ionization. Books by Robert G. Brown Physics Textbooks • Introductory Physics I and II A lecture note style textbook series intended to support the teaching of introductory physics, with calculus, at a level suitable for Duke undergraduates. The full set of lecture notes come in around pages and can be downloaded here. This covers the following topics: Newtonian Mechanics, Forces, Interlude, Dimensional Analysis, Systems of Particles, Central Forces, Rigid Bodies, Non-Inertial Frames and Special lecture notes can be downloaded in both PDF and PS formats.
