Gauge field theories. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1059.81122
Chichester: Wiley (ISBN 0-471-34783-3). vii, 343 p. (2000).
Publisher’s description: The first edition of “Gauge Field Theories”, published in 1987, quickly became widely used in universities and other institutions of higher learning around the world. Written by well-known physicist Paul Frampton, the new edition continues to offer a first-rate mathematical treatment of gauge field theories, while thoroughly updating all chapters to keep pace with developments in the field. Frampton emphasizes formalism rather than experiments and provides sufficient detail for readers wishing to do their own calculations or pursue theoretical physics research. Special features of the Second Edition include:
- Improved, logical organization of the material on gauge invariance, quantization, and renormalization. - Major revision of the chapter on electroweak interactions, incorporating the latest precision data and discovery of the top quark. - Discussions of renormalization group and quantum chromodynamics. - A completely new chapter on model building.
