about

This volume is an exercises and solutions manual that complements the book "Particles and Fundamental Interactions" by Sylvie Braibant, Giorgio Giacomelli, and Maurizio Spurio. It aims to give additional intellectual stimulation for students in experimental particle physics. 

It will be a helpful companion in the preparation of a written examination, but also it provides a means to gaining a deeper understanding of high energy physics. The problems proposed are sometimes true and important research questions, which are described and solved in a step-by-step manner. In addition to the problems and solutions, this book offers fifteen Supplements that give further insight into topical subjects related to particle accelerators, signal and data acquisition systems and computational methods to treat them.

Giorgio M. Giacomelli became full professor of Physics in 1971. He is (co)author of more than 650 publications in scientific journals and over 350 reports and conference proceedings. He supervised 115 Laurea Theses, 30 PhD Theses.  He received prizes from the Italian Physical Society, the University of Bologna and from the A. Della Ric...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is intended mainly to undergraduate students in experimental and theoretical physics but is also suitable for physics teachers that can find here an extensive collection of exercises (or can be inspired by them). It can be also very useful to all the people that want to approach the subject of modern particle physics and are looking for a good training."
