About this book

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.

With this graduate-level primer, the principles of the standard model of particle physics receive a particular skillful, personal and enduring exposition by one of the great contributors to the field.

In 2013 the late Prof. Altarelli wrote: The discovery of the Higgs boson and the non-observation of new particles or exotic phenomena have made a big step towards completing the experimental confirmation of the standard model of fundamental particle interactions. It is thus a good moment for me to collect, update and improve my graduate lecture notes on quantum chromodynamics and the theory of electroweak interactions, with main focus on collider physics. I hope that these lectures can provide an introduction to the subject for the interested reader, assumed to be already familiar with quantum field theory and some basic facts in elementary particle physics as taught in undergraduate courses.

“These lecture notes are a beautiful example of Guido’s unique pedagogical abilities and scientific vision”. From the Foreword by Gian Giudice




About the authors

Guido Altarelli (1941 – 2015) was a Senior Staff Physicist at the Theory Division of CERN and the Theory Division Leader from 2000 to 2004. Best known for his contribution on the QCD evolution equations for parton densities, known as the Altarelli- Parisi or DGLAP equations, he received the 2011 Julius Wess Award for Outstanding Achievements in Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics (KIT), the 2012 J. J. Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics (APS) and the 2015 High Energy and Particle Physics Prize from the EPS.
