This monograph presents a coherent and elementary introduction to Gauge theories of the fundamental interactions and their applications to high-energy physics. It deals with the logic and structure of local Gauge symmetries and Gauge theories, from quantum electrodynamics through unified theories of the interactions among leptons and quarks. Many explicit calculations provide the reader with practice in computing the consequences of these theories and offer a perspective on key experimental investigations. First published in 1983, this text is ideal for a one-semester course on Gauge theories and particle physics. Specialists in particle physics and others who wish to understand the basic ideas of Gauge theories will find it useful as a reference and for self-study.

Meet the Author

Chris Quigg is internationally known for his studies of heavy quarks and his insights into electroweak symmetry breaking and particle interactions at ultrahigh energies. He has been a visiting professor at École Normale Supérieure in Paris, Cornell University, and Princeton University; Erwin Schrödinger Professor at the University of Vienna; and Scholar-in-Residence at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Study and Conference Center in Italy. He has served on the faculties of the State University of New York at Stony Brook and the University of Chicago. A member of the Fermilab staff since 1974, Dr. Quigg was for ten years Head of the Laboratory’s Theoretical Physics Department. He received his B.S. degree from Yale University in 1966 and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1970. He is Editor of the Annual Review of Nuclear and Particle Science.
