Quantum Principles and Particles
by

Publisher: Baylor University

Description:
This is a two semester, 550 page introductory text, plus a 10 page index. It includes material which overlaps with particle physics, including a number of interesting models as well as material on identical particles. The ideas of quantum mechanics are introduced via "Process Diagrams", which are filter/transition devices which help students visualize the states involved and to make transparent the means of computing the amplitudes for certain quantum mechanical processes.

by - arXiv
The general question, crucial to the internal structure of nucleon, of how to split the total angular momentum of a photon or gluon into spin and orbital contributions is one of the most important and interesting challenges faced by gauge theories.

'Dark Matter and Other Elementary Particles' develops a spatial model of the elementary particles (e.g., proton, neutron, electron, quarks, nuclides, and mesons) for particle physics much as the 'ball and stick' model provides to chemistry.
