Lists with This Book. Feb 08, Padiac marked it as to-read Shelves: Apr 28, Brian Powell rated it really liked it Shelves: I learned SU 3 from this book, and for that I’m grateful. While standard texts on quantum field theory and particle physics mostly adequately cover the more pedestrian groups like SU 2SO 3etc, SU 3 is too complicated to be done justice by only the topical, passing mention given in these books.
Georgi covers roots, weights, and the “anatomy” of Lie groups, with SU 3 occupying a starring role throughout the work.
The text, however, is terse and formal it is based on lecture notes. Thoug I learned SU 3 from this book, and for that I’m grateful. Though the breadth of topics is impressive Lie algebra basics to GUTs to spinor representationsmany are given short shrift and so this book is hit or miss in some places. But for SU 3 it is good.

Lie Algebras In Particle Physics : from Isospin To Unified Theories
In he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences and received the J. He later proposed the supersymmetric Standard Model with Savas Dimopoulos in It is also worth mentioning his role in the Georgi-Quinn-Weinberg computation showing that the natural mass scale of unification is relatively close to the Plank scale and that the proton lifetime can naturally be extremely long.
He has since worked on several parricle areas of physics including composite Higgs models, heavy quark effective theory, dimensional deconstruction and little Higgs theories. Most recently, with Arkani-Hamed and Cohen, he has found a class of 4-dimensional field theories in which extra dimensions can arise dynamically, providing a new slant of the meaning of space.

The topological properties of such theories may shed light on critical issues such as the breaking of SU 2 xU 1 and supersymmetry. He continues to study these issues in the hopes they will shed light on the meaning of gauge symmetry. Other books in the series.
