By Professor Quang Ho-Kim, Professor Xuan-Yem Pham (auth.)

Elementary debris and Their Interactions. innovations and Phenomena provides a well-written and thorough creation to this box on the complicated undergraduate and graduate point. scholars accustomed to quantum mechanics, particular relativity and classical electrodynamics will locate easy accessibility to fashionable particle physics and a wealthy resource of illustrative examples, figures, tables, and issues of chosen recommendations. additional references advisor the reader throughout the literature. this article should still develop into a regular connection with particle physics and may be helpful to scholars and teachers alike.

Beginner's Basque

This name includes a ebook and a pair of audio CDs. Basque is the language spoken through the Basque those who stay within the Pyrenees in North principal Spain and the adjacent sector of south west France. it's also spoken via many immigrant groups worldwide together with the U.S., Venezuela, Argentina, Mexico and Colombia.

Elementary Algebra

Hassle-free Algebra is a piece textual content that covers the conventional issues studied in a contemporary straightforward algebra direction. it's meant for college students who (1) don't have any publicity to common algebra, (2) have formerly had an uncongenial event with straight forward algebra, or (3) have to evaluate algebraic techniques and methods.

An observable X is said to be invariant to the Lorentz group when it commutes with all generators L",v' In particular, a physical system is said to be invariant if the Hamiltonian that describes it satisfies [H, Ll'vl = 0 for all 1-', v. 71) which represent the total angular momentum of a scalar field. 72) where €ijk is the completely antisymmetric Levi-Civita tensor, such that €123 = +1. We learn from these results that the orbital angular momentum is the whole contribution to the total angular momentum.

95) can be viewed as a state of a particle moving in the reverse time direction. 96) The interpretation of ¢( -) as a state of negative energy propagating in the reverse time direction is certainly counterintuitive and rather difficult to visualize. It would be conceptually clearer to replace it with the picture intuitively more familiar to our senses of a state of antiparticle of positive energy propagating in the normal time direction. By antiparticle, we mean a charge conjugate state to the positive-energy state, with the same mass, but with opposite charge and reversed momentum direction.
