Lie Algebras In Particle Physics: from Isospin To Unified Theories (Frontiers in Physics) by Howard Georgi



A nice book that lacks a common theme. Georgi was one of the first who wrote down a Grand Unified Theory, so he knows quite some group theory and why it is important in physics. Nevertheless, this vast knowledge does not transfer directly to great didactical explanations. The book seems to me as piecemeal.

it's here if you want i. ou'll have to work for i. his is not written by a mathematician, so fellow math phDs be ready. i didn't make it too far, but i wasn't so beaten down that i might not crack this one open again. do the world a favor, please: read this book and write a slightly.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption. Request an e-inspection copy. However, this is not a complete text on group theory in particle physics (and therefore, little of what you need for supersymmetric field theories and string theories). So in addition to this book, you'd need something else with an introduction to the other things you need for your particular interest. which I believe is out of print (in libraries).

Howard Georgi is the co-inventor (with Sheldon Glashow) of the SU(5) theory. This extensively revised and updated edition of his classic text makes the theory of Lie groups accessible to graduate students, while offering a perspective on the way in which knowledge of such groups can provide an insight into the development of unified theories of strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions.

Este libro es uno de los más citados en el área, el problema es que es una edición antigua en la que la nomenclatura es algo anticuada lo que dificulta su lectura, además la tipografía del libro es "como máquina de escribir" por lo que resulta difícil leer los caracteres. Por lo demás este libro es una buena elección ya que, por ejemplo, el capítulo 5 del libro Gauge Field Theories de M. Guidry está basado en los capítulos 1,2,3 y 5 (de hecho Guidry lo toma como referencia) los cuales explican de manera explícita la mayoría de los resultados obtenidos por Guidry.
El libro en sí es una excelente opción, la encuadernación es muy buena y es de pasta dura, sólo tiene el detalle de la nomenclatura antigua. Existe una segunda edición de la editorial Westview Press de 1999 la cual cuenta con varios capítulos agregados, tipografía moderna y nomenclatura actualizada.
Si se tiene de regular a buen conocimiento en el tema y se está acostumbrado a la nomenclatura antigua este libro es una buena opción. De otro modo, yo recomendaría la segunda edición.

I had a copy of this book in graduate school, on loan from our library. I found it to be a good introduction to Lie Algebra in general and its application to describing the spectrum of mesons and hadrons found in particle physics. I was glad to find it on line and it was one of the first books I purchased for my personal library as a physicist.

If I wasn't reading this side by side with a professor, many parts of it would have been baffling. There are two areas especially where something is presented as though proven but isn't actually proven. I would recommend this only if you have a professor to consult, if you don't intend to read every proof line-by-line, or if you are using it for review

I really like this book, He explained very well Lie group and Lie algebra with applications in particle physics. Properties of SU(N) are shown very well in this book.

great introduction for students and researchers alike.
I love Mercedes
+Easy to read.
+Gives many explicit examples.
-Sometimes it is hard to comprehend the meaning of a single sentence!

-> Good introduction for students with basic knowledge of Quantum Mechanics.

I know Lie Algebras from the mathematical side. I expected the author to give a physical argument of why it was applicable to elementary particles. He tries sort of, but mostly bluffs his way through the math and uses symbols of his own without defining them. I gave it two stars because nevertheless I was able to glean some little bits of insight from the book, but unfortunately not much.
A nice book that lacks a common theme. Georgi was one of the first who wrote down a Grand Unified Theory, so he knows quite some group theory and why it is important in physics. Nevertheless, this vast knowledge does not transfer directly to great didactical explanations. The book seems to me as piecemeal. Some chapters were quite nice, others seemed really irrelevant and I didn't understand why they are there. Nowadays there are several books that offer better explanations of these topics, but Georgi's book will of course remain a classic and some chapters are still useful. As lang as one does not expect a book that is read from cover to cover I can recommend this book
