Theories and Lagrangians III: The Standard Model

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 839)


The previous two chapters were devoted to introducing the basic ingredients necessary in building up a physical description of elementary particles: the fermion matter fields and the gauge fields responsible for the interactions. The time has come to combine these elements into a description of the physics of elementary particles. The result will be the standard model.
