- Publisher's Summary
- This third edition on the classic "Gauge Field Theories" is an ideal reference for researchers starting work with the Large Hadron Collider and the future International Linear Collider. This latest title continues to offer an up to date reference containing revised chapters on electro-weak interactions and model building including a completely new chapter on conformality. Within this essential reference logical organization of the material on gauge invariance, quantization, and re-normalization is also discussed providing necessary reading for Cosmologists and Particle Astrophysicists.
