Stresses the reasoning chain of experimental observation, the development of physical principles and how to make math/quantitative models. Includes more modern material than its competitors. Chapters on the techniques of the fields provide a unique perspective and connect the methodologies of nuclear and particle physics. In addition, explanations of the connection between formalism of theory and more classical concepts bring the theory down to a more understandable level.Review:
The book by Das and Ferbel is particularly suited as a basis for a one-semester course on both subjects since it contains a very concise introduction to those topics and I like very much the outline and contents of this book. --Kay Konigsmann, Universität Freiburg, Germany
The book provides an introduction to the subject very well suited for the introductory course for physics majors. Presentation is very clear and nicely balances the issues of nuclear and particle physics, exposes both theoretical ideas and modern experimental methods. Presentation is also very economic and one can cover most of the book in a one-semester course. In the second edition, the authors updated the contents to reflect the very recent developments in the theory and experiment. They managed to do it without substantial increase of the size of the book. I used the first edition several times to teach the course Introduction to Subatomic Physics and I am looking forward to use this new edition to teach the course next year. --Professor Mark Strikman, Pennsylvania State University, USA
This book can be recommended to those who find elementary particle physics of absorbing interest. --Contemporary Physics
