Review of Particle Physics 2008

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.

This is an introductory text, 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.

In this review we explain the main methods and techniques of lattice perturbation theory, focusing on the cases of Wilson and Ginsparg-Wilson fermions. We will illustrate, among other, the peculiarities of perturbative techniques on the lattice ...

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.
