Lectures on the Theory of the Weak Interaction
by Michael E. Peskin
Publisher: arXiv.org 2017
Number of pages: 96
The topics discussed are: (1) the experimental basis of the V-A structure of the weak interaction; (2) precision electroweak measurements at the Z resonance; (3) the Goldstone Boson Equivalence Theorem; (4) the Standard Model theory of the Higgs boson; (5) the future program of precision study of the Higgs boson.

A quark is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. They combine to form hadrons, the most stable of which are protons and neutrons, the components of atomic nuclei. Quarks are never directly observed or found in isolation.

The authors review pedagogically non-Abelian discrete groups, which play an important role in the particle physics. They show group-theoretical aspects for many concrete groups, such as representations, their tensor products.

The object is to introduce the ideas behind lattice gauge theory, with an intended audience of quantum field theorists with no lattice experience. The author concentrates on field theory aspects which are elucidated by lattice gauge theory.

In these lecture notes the author shall discuss nuclear and particle physics on a somewhat phenomenological level. The mathematical sophistication shall be rather limited, with an emphasis on the physics and on symmetry aspects.
