**Review of Particle Physics 2008**

by L. Alvarez-Gaume

**Publisher**: Elsevier 2008**ISBN/ASIN**: B001K7NO5U**Number of pages**: 1340

**Description**:

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.
