Experiments and Detection Methods
The subject of this chapter is related to experiments and detection methods. It is divided into three sections: relativistic kinematics, passage of particles and radiation through matter and detection techniques and methods. In the first section several problems involving relativistic scattering and decay are proposed. Here we use the relativistic invariant approach (and the formalism) following Relativistic Kinematics, by R. Hagedorn . The interaction of radiation with matter deals with the electromagnetic processes occurring to particles at each experimental site and which also make them detectable. An excellent review of this subject can be found in . In the last section problems address experimental and detection techniques in realistic and actual cases.
