From the Universe to the Elementary Particles: A First by Ulrich Ellwanger

By Ulrich Ellwanger

In this e-book, the writer leads the reader, step-by-step and with none complicated arithmetic, to a transparent knowing of the rules of contemporary basic particle physics and cosmology. He additionally addresses present and arguable questions about themes resembling string concept. The e-book contains gentle introductions to the theories of targeted and normal relativity, and likewise classical and quantum box concept. the fundamental features of those recommendations are understood with assistance from easy calculations; for instance, the strength of gravity by reason of the curvature of the space-time.

Also handled are the massive Bang, darkish subject and darkish strength, in addition to the almost immediately identified interactions of basic debris: electrodynamics, the powerful and the vulnerable interactions together with the Higgs boson. eventually, the e-book sketches as but speculative theories: Grand Unification theories, supersymmetry, string thought and the belief of extra dimensions of space-time. due to the fact no greater mathematical or physics services is needed, the ebook can also be appropriate for faculty and collage scholars first and foremost in their experiences. pastime astronomers and different technology fanatics looking a deeper perception than are available in well known remedies also will get pleasure from this special e-book.
