    I must say that this book left me a bit disappointed and uite underwhelmed it is well written very detailed when describing the historical evolution of modern particle physics rich with anecdotal detail and also conceptua

    Close provided a history of uantum physics from ED and Feynman's diagrams to the hunt for the Higgs I never get tired of Feynman's antics and it's clear Frank Close doesn't either Like so many other researchers with new and bold idea

  3. says:

    This is a really important popular science book if you are interested in physics because it covers some of the important bits of modern physics that most of us science writers are too afraid to write about Starting with renormalization in ED the techniue used to get rid of the unwanted infinities that plagued the early versions of the theory and moving on to the weak force the massive W and Z bosons the Higgs business

    I have to admit this is not much of a review For one I read last year and for two I made very few notesI feel this was of a tour of uantum physics But what infinity had to do with unless I missed it never showed up Disclaimer it could be the

    This is a detailed history of the discoveries of uantum Electrodynamics ED uantum Chromodynamics CD and their unification into the Standard Model by spontaneous symmetry breaking and the Higgs mechanism It's one of those people driven histories of science which can get boring if not petty at times But overall it tells an exciting story of th

    The book is written by a good scientist who wrote some other very clear work and about some fascinating hardcore particle physics I fully expect it to be a 4 if not 5 star book Unfortunately this is deeply disappointing No doubt it’s not a simple subject and it’s not easy for laymen to understand Try this “The uestion was this If symmetry is spontaneously broken in the presence of a massless vector gauge boson s

    There's almost not a wasted word in this book If you blink while listening you might lose track of the physics The author is very good at writing a history of uantum science from ED to looking for the Higgs bosonHe uses the narrative of the scientific players to describe the physics There is nothing of the physics or the m

    This book talks about the history of physics since the WWII It has a particular discussion on two prominent figures in physics the Dutch physicist Gerard 't Hooft and the Pakistani physicist Abdus Salam For general people probably this is the best book on Higgs Boson from the evolution of Higgs mechanism until its final d

    I have always been fascinated by the whole business of the unification of the world of the electron and the photon with the so called weak force that mediates radioactive decay As someone with an undergraduate physics degree and a PhD and subseuent career in MRI physics I have a bit of an advantage over an “average layperson”

    If you are fascinated at all with recent and by recent I mean the latter half of the 20th century development in physics an

Speculation is rife that by 2012 the elusive Higgs boson will be found at the Large Hadron Collider If found the Higgs boson would help explain why everything has mass But there’s at stake what we’re really testing is our capacity to make the universe reasona.

The Infinity Puzzle uantum Field Theory and the Hunt for an Orderly Universe

The kind of physics that the Higgs boson represents seeks to “renormalize” field theory forcing euations to provide answers that match what we see in the real world The Infinity Puzzle is the story of a wild idea on the road to acceptance Only Close can tell. I have always been fascinated by the whole business of the unification of the world of the electron and the photon with the so called weak force that mediates radioactive decay As someone with an undergraduate physics degree and a PhD and subseuent career in MRI physics I have a bit of an advantage over an average layperson but in fact I have none of the relevant background to understand the technicalities of uantum electrodynamics ED let alone uantum field theory FT other than the most basic knowledge of introductory uantum mechanics Over the last thirty or so years there has been a growing genre of books by leading theoretical physicists w Let Sleeping Dogs Lie years there has been a growing genre of books by leading theoretical physicists w

Ble Our best understanding of physics is predicated on something known as uantum field theory Unfortunately in its raw form it doesn’t make sense its outputs are physically impossible infinite percentages when they should be something simpler like the number 1. This is a detailed history of the discoveries of uantum Electrodynamics ED uantum Chromodynamics CD and their unification into the Standard Model by spontaneous symmetry breaking and the Higgs mechanism It s one of those people driven histories of science which can get boring if not petty at times But overall it tells an exciting story of this impressive achievementThe central theme of the book is renormalization in Gauge Theory The first half of the book introduces the reader to these topics uite well and doesn t hold back too much of the mathematical details I feel like I understand this topic a lot better now Very educational
