about

This book, written by researchers who had been professionals in accelerator physics before becoming leaders of groups in astroparticle physics, introduces both fields in a balanced and elementary way, requiring only a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics on the part of the reader. 

The new profile of scientists in fundamental physics ideally involves the merging of knowledge in astroparticle and particle physics, but the duration of modern experiments is such that people cannot simultaneously be practitioners in both. Introduction to Particle and Astroparticle Physics is designed to bridge the gap between the fields. It can be used as a self-training book, a consultation book, or a textbook providing a "modern" approach to particles and fundamental interactions.

Alessandro de Angelis is a high-energy physicist and astrophysicist. Full Professor at the University of Udine and the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) of the University of Lisbon, he is currently Director of Research at INFN Padova and chairman of the collaboration board managing the MAGIC gamma-ray telescope at the Northern European ...
