A Simple Introduction to Particle Physics
by M. Robinson, K. Bland, G. Cleaver, J. Dittmann, T. Ali
Publisher: arXiv 2008
A brief introduction to the relevant mathematical and physical ideas that form the foundation of Particle Physics, including Group Theory, Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory and Interactions, Abelian and Non-Abelian Gauge Theory, and the SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) Gauge Theory that describes our universe apart from gravity. These notes are intended for a student who has completed the standard undergraduate physics and mathematics courses.

These are lectures which I gave at the 2012 CERN Summer School. They cover the basics of gauge symmetries and the phenomenon of spontaneous symmetry breaking which are used in the construction of the Standard Model of the Electro-Weak Interactions.

These lecture notes have been written for a short introductory course on universality and renormalization group techniques given at the VIII Modave School in Mathematical Physics, intended for PhD students and researchers new to these topics.
