Dark Matter and Other Elementary Particles

The authors 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. Although the overall model is based upon a few simple assumptions, the effort leads to the development of spatial models for quarks, elementary particles and atomic nuclei that show attributes and predictions that are not provided by other spatial models.

An 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, etc.

In these lecture notes the author shall discuss nuclear and particle physics on a somewhat phenomenological level. The mathematical sophistication shall be rather limited, with an emphasis on the physics and on symmetry aspects.
A quark is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. They combine to form hadrons, the most stable of which are protons and neutrons, the components of atomic nuclei. Quarks are never directly observed or found in isolation.

Linde offers a thorough investigation of modern cosmology and its relation to elementary particle physics, including a large introductory section containing a complete discussion of inflationary cosmology for those not yet familiar with the theory.
