About the Authors
  • This collection of review lectures on topics in theoretical high energy physics has few rivals for clarity of exposition and depth of insight. Delivered over the past two decades at the International School of Subnuclear Physics in Erice, Sicily, the lectures help to organize and explain material that a the time existed in a confused state, scattered in the literature. At the time they were given they spread new ideas throughout the physics community and proved very popular as introductions to topics at the frontiers of research.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...must surely be an invaluable supplement and resource for any advanced course in particle physics...[Coleman's] writing is elegant, lean, utterly authoritative--and a bit sly and tricky...this book is a classic." Physics Today
