An important academic text that provides an overview of a hot research topic
An extensive survey based on precision measurements at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider
In the rarified world of particle physics, the Top Quark is at the top of the research food chain.
As the massive experimental facilities at Fermilab and Hadron smash particles together, precision measurements are made that may give us some idea of the nature of the Top Quark.
This, then, will be a required acquisition text for academic libraries. More than ten years after its discovery, still relatively little is known about the top quark, the heaviest known elementary particle.
This extensive survey summarizes and reviews top-quark physics based on the precision measurements at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider.
Prepared by a leading researcher in the field, the book’s purpose is also to examine in detail the sensitivity of these experiments to new physics.
Finally, the author provides an overview of top quark physics at the Large Hadron Collider.
