Summary:
This book discusses the main concepts of the Standard Model of elementary particles in a compact and straightforward way. The theoretical results are derived using the physical phenomena as a starting point. This inductive approach allows a deep understanding of the methods used for solving problems in this field. This second, revised edition is expanded with biographical notes contextualizing the main results in quantum field theory.
