General particle physics texts

  • Introduction to high energy physics, D.H. Perkins, Addison-Wesley (2nd and 3rd ed.), Cambridge University Press (4th ed.). There are many copies of this book between 2nd and 4th edition in the library. Emphasis on 'historical' physics/methods.

  • Quarks and Leptons: An Introductory Course in Modern Particle Physics, F. Halzen and A.D. Martin, Wiley and Sons, ISBN 0-471-88741-2 (1984). Difficult to get hold of and more advanced than required for our course.
  • Elements of Nuclear Physics, W.E. Burcham, Longman, ISBN 0-582-46027-1 (1985). There is a more recent book by Burcham and Jobes which may also be useful.
  • Nuclear and Particle Physics, B.R.Martin, Wiley, ISBN 0-470-02532-8 (2006).
