  • About this textbook

  • Features a concise, yet self-contained presentation
  • Details the current theory of ElectroWeak interactions after one year of operation of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva
  • Focuses on open questions that the LHC experiments might allow to answer

Elementary particle physics is the quadrant of nature whose laws can be written in a few lines with absolute precision and the greatest empirical adequacy. The lectures presented in this book aim at introducing students and interested readers to the entire subject in a compact way.
