The first edition of this necessary reading for cosmologists and particle astrophysicists was quickly adopted by universities and other institutions of higher learning around the world. And with the data and references updated throughout, this third edition continues to be an ideal reference on the subject. The tried-and-tested logical structuring of the material on gauge invariance, quantization, and renormalization has been retained, while the chapters on electroweak interactions and model building have been revised. Completely new is the chapter on conformality. As in the past, Frampton emphasizes formalism rather than experiments and provides sufficient detail for readers wishing to do their own calculations or pursue theoretical physics research.such that Va2 + Vj = V2, with V = 2~a#39;/4G-1/2 ~ 248 GeV, giving the normal WAp and ZAd masses. ... the axion a with a mass of a few 100 keV [90, 91] with prescribed couplings to fermions and to photons; such an axion has been excluded experimentally. ... of a quark-antiquark pair with the same meson (the 0 meson), resulting in a quark diagram that is divisible into two pieces unconnected by quark lines.
