Higgs Force: The Symmetry-Breaking Force that Makes the World an Interesting Place

Author: Nicholas Mee

Edition: First

Publisher: James Clarke & Co/Lutterworth Press

Pages: 322

Price: £15.00

ISBN: 97807188953

Aimed at students and scholars as well as the general reader, Higgs Force aims to provide a readable and compelling account of the fundamental components of matter and the forces that bind them together. Theoretical particle physicist Nicholas Mee considers in turn the broad historical and philosophical context; each of the forces that are important in particle physics; and the modern synthesis of the particles and forces and the search for the last missing piece in the particle physics jigsaw.

Representation: Theory of Finite Groups: An Introductory Approach

Author: Benjamin Steinberg

Edition: First

Publisher: Springer

Pages: 157

Price: £29.99

ISBN: 9781461407751

This book presents group representation theory at a level accessible to advanced undergraduate students and beginning graduate students, largely keeping the required background to the level of undergraduate linear algebra, group theory and basic ring theory. Module theory and Wedderburn's theorem, as well as tensor products, are deliberately avoided; instead, the book's approach is based on discrete Fourier analysis.
