**A Simple Introduction to Particle Physics**

by M. Robinson, K. Bland, G. Cleaver, J. Dittmann, T. Ali

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008

**Description**:

A brief introduction to the relevant mathematical and physical ideas that form the foundation of Particle Physics, including Group Theory, Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory and Interactions, Abelian and Non-Abelian Gauge Theory, and the SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) Gauge Theory that describes our universe apart from gravity. These notes are intended for a student who has completed the standard undergraduate physics and mathematics courses.
