Review of Particle Physics 2008
by L. Alvarez-Gaume
Publisher: Elsevier 2008
Number of pages: 1340
This biennial Review summarizes much of particle physics. Using data from previous editions, plus 2778 new measurements from 645 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons, leptons, quarks, mesons, and baryons. We also summarize searches for hypothetical particles such as Higgs bosons, heavy neutrinos, and supersymmetric particles.

The general question, crucial to the internal structure of nucleon, of how to split the total angular momentum of a photon or gluon into spin and orbital contributions is one of the most important and interesting challenges faced by gauge theories.

Interest in particle physics continues among scientists and the general public. This book includes theoretical aspects, with chapters outlining the generation model and a charged Higgs boson model as alternative scenarios to the Standard Model.

My aim is to explain the essentials of lattice calculations, give an update on the present status of calculations of phenomenologically interesting quantities, and to provide an understanding of the various sources of uncertainty in the results.
