Particle Physics is the first book to connect theory and experiment in particle physics. Duncan Carlsmith provides the first accessible exposition of the standard model with sufficient mathematical depth to demystify the language of gauge theory and Feynman diagrams used by researchers in the field. Carlsmith also connects theories to past, present, and future experiments.

11. Beyond the Standard Model
- Develops engineering and theoretical concepts (exact calculation of tree level processes) through extensive examples, illustrations, and exercises (with solutions) to a degree that the reader will feel at home in the particle world.
- Provides the latest exciting developments in collider and neutrino experiments.
- Relevant to both one- and two-semester courses.
- Includes a full chapter on the interactions of particles with matter and the principles of particle detection.
- Fosters an appreciation for the experimental basis of particle science and its connections with other fields of physics.
- Helps students acquire a sense of future direction in high-energy physics research.
Duncan Carlsmith is a professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with over 20 years of teaching and research experience. He has authored more than 400 scientific papers and is a member of two forefront collaborations in elementary particle physics: the Collider Detector Facility (CDF) collaboration at Fermilab in Illinois, and the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland.
