In this course I shall discuss nuclear and particle physics on a somewhat phenomenological level. The mathematical sophistication shall be rather limited, with an emphasis on the physics and on symmetry aspects.
W.E. Burcham and M. Jobes, Nuclear and Particle Physics, Addison Wesley Longman Ltd, Harlow, 1995.
B.R. Martin and G. Shaw, Particle Physics, John Wiley and sons, Chicester, 1996. A solid book on particle physics, slightly more advanced than this course.
G.D. Coughlan and J.E. Dodd, The ideas of particle physics, Cambridge University Press, 1991. A more hand waving but more exciting introduction to particle physics. Reasonably up to date.
N.G. Cooper and G.B. West (eds.), Particle Physics: A Los Alamos Primer, Cambridge University Press, 1988. A bit less up to date, but very exciting and challenging book.
R. C. Fernow, Introduction to experimental Particle Physics, Cambridge University Press. 1986. A good source for experimental techniques and technology. A bit too advanced for the course.
F. Halzen and A.D. Martin, Quarks and Leptons: An introductory Course in particle physics, John Wiley and Sons, New York, 1984. A graduate level text book.
F.E. Close, An introduction to Quarks and Partons, Academic Press, London, 1979. Another highly recommendable graduate text.
The particle adventure: . A very nice–but slightly low level–introduction to particle physics.
