A Simple Introduction to Particle Physics
by M. Robinson, K. Bland, G. Cleaver, J. Dittmann, T. Ali
Publisher: arXiv 2008
A brief introduction to the relevant mathematical and physical ideas that form the foundation of Particle Physics, including Group Theory, Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory and Interactions, Abelian and Non-Abelian Gauge Theory, and the SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) Gauge Theory that describes our universe apart from gravity. These notes are intended for a student who has completed the standard undergraduate physics and mathematics courses.

This is an introductory text, it includes material which overlaps with particle physics, including a number of interesting models as well as material on identical particles. The ideas of quantum mechanics are introduced via Process Diagrams.

'Dark Matter and Other Elementary Particles' develops a spatial model of the elementary particles (e.g., proton, neutron, electron, quarks, nuclides, and mesons) for particle physics much as the 'ball and stick' model provides to chemistry.

Seesaw-type and low-scale models of neutrino masses are reviewed, along with the corresponding structure of the lepton mixing matrix. The status of neutrino oscillation parameters as of June 2006 is given, including recent fluxes.
