About this Textbook

This book presents more than 300 exercises, with guided solutions, on topics that span both the experimental and the theoretical aspects of particle physics. The exercises are organized by subject, covering kinematics, interactions of particles with matter, particle detectors, hadrons and resonances, electroweak interactions and flavor physics, statistics and data analysis, and accelerators and beam dynamics. Some 200 of the exercises, including 50 in multiple-choice format, derive from exams set by the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Research (INFN) over the past decade to select its scientific staff of experimental researchers. The remainder comprise problems taken from the undergraduate classes at ETH Zurich or inspired by classic textbooks. Whenever appropriate, in-depth information is provided on the source of the problem, and readers will also benefit from the inclusion of bibliographic details and short dissertations on particular topics. This book is an ideal complement to textbooks on experimental and theoretical particle physics and will enable students to evaluate their knowledge and preparedness for exams. 

About the authors

Lorenzo Bianchini gained his Master’s degree in Physics in 2009 at the University of Pisa, Italy, as a student of the Scuola Normale Superiore. Subsequently, in 2012, he obtained his PhD in Physics at École Polytechnique, France, for a thesis on the search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying to tau leptons with the CMS detector, which won the Prix de Thèse de l’École Politechnique (best PhD thesis award). He continued his scientific activity in the CMS Collaboration as a postdoc at the Institute for Particle Physics, ETH Zurich and he is currently employed as a researcher at the italian Institute for Nuclear Physics. His main research activity concerns the physics of the Higgs boson at the LHC, with particular emphasis on the measurement of its fermionic couplings using advanced data analysis techniques. He is lead or co-author of more than 500 scientific publications in High Energy Physics and has presented his work at international conferences, invited seminars, and outreach activities.
