Quantum Principles and Particles
by Walter Wilcox
Publisher: Baylor University 1992
This is a two semester, 550 page introductory text, plus a 10 page index. It includes material which overlaps with particle physics, including a number of interesting models as well as material on identical particles. The ideas of quantum mechanics are introduced via "Process Diagrams", which are filter/transition devices which help students visualize the states involved and to make transparent the means of computing the amplitudes for certain quantum mechanical processes.

The Standard Model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak, and strong nuclear interactions, which mediate the dynamics of subatomic particles. It was developed as a collaborative effort of scientists around the world.
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.

Structure functions are a measure of the partonic structure of hadrons. This is an overview on present structure function and related data, and on the techniques used to extract parton distribution functions to describe the structure of the proton.
