Title  Symmetries and group theory in particle physics: An Introduction to Spacetime and Internal Symmetries 
Author(s)  Giovanni Costa;Gianluigi Fogli 
Publication  Berlin, SpringerVerlag, 2012. 
Description  xiii, 291p. 
Series  (Lecture note in physics) 
Abstract Note  Symmetries, coupled with the mathematical concept of group theory, are an essential conceptual backbone in the formulation of quantum field theories capable of describing the world of elementary particles. This primer is an introduction to and survey of the underlying concepts and structures needed in order to understand and handle these powerful tools. Specifically, in Part I of the book the symmetries and related group theoretical structures of the Minkowskian spacetime manifold are analyzed, while Part II examines the internal symmetries and their related unitary groups, where the interactions between fundamental particles are encoded as we know them from the present standard model of particle physics. This book, based on several courses given by the authors, addresses advanced graduate students and nonspecialist researchers wishing to enter active research in the field, and having a working knowledge of classical field theory and relativistic quantum mechanics. Numerous endofchapter problems and their solutions will facilitate the use of this book as selfstudy guide or as course book for topical lectures.

Title  Group theory for the standard model of particle physics and beyond 
Author(s)  Ken J. Barnes 
Publication  Boca Raton, CRC Press, 2010. 
Description  xiii, 241p. 
Series  (Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation) 
Abstract Note  Based on the authorâs wellestablished courses, Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond explores the use of symmetries through descriptions of the techniques of Lie groups and Lie algebras. The text develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to understand these symmetries.
After linking symmetries with conservation laws, the book works through the mathematics of angular momentum and extends operators and functions of classical mechanics to quantum mechanics. It then covers the mathematical framework for special relativity and the internal symmetries of the standard model of elementary particle physics. In the chapter on Noetherâs theorem, the author explains how Lagrangian formalism provides a natural framework for the quantum mechanical interpretation of symmetry principles. He then examines electromagnetic, weak, and strong interactions; spontaneous symmetry breaking; the elusive Higgs boson; and supersymmetry. He also introduces new techniques based on extending spaceâtime into dimensions described by anticommuting coordinates.
Designed for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics, this text provides succinct yet complete coverage of the group theory of the symmetries of the standard model of elementary particle physics. It will help students understand current knowledge about the standard model as well as the physics that potentially lies beyond the standard model.
