Title  Symmetries and group theory in particle physics: An Introduction to Spacetime and Internal Symmetries 
Author(s)  Giovanni Costa;Gianluigi Fogli

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.
