Understanding the physics of heavy quarks gives physicists the unique opportunity to test the predictions of Quantum Chromodynamics and the Standard Model. First published in 2000, this introductory text on this exciting area of high-energy physics begins with a review of the standard model, followed by the basics of heavy quark spin-flavor symmetry and how it can be applied to the classification of states, decays and fragmentation. Heavy quark effective theory is then developed and applied to the study of hadron masses, form factors, and inclusive decay rates. The authors also discuss the application of chiral perturbation theory to heavy hadrons. Written by two world leading experts, the presentation is clear and original, with problems provided at the end of each chapter. This lucid volume provides graduate students with an ideal introduction to the physics of heavy quarks, and more experienced researchers with an authoritative reference to the subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Manohar and Wise now provide us with a valuable textbook on heavy quark physics ... The illuminating discussions of the approximations and assumptions made at each step ... make it valuable reading for all physicists ... a concise and systematic summary of today's knowledge, and will stay as a bibliographical milestone while new developments take place.' Gordon Fraser, CERN
"...a detailed and well-thought-out presentation by two world-renowned experts...a wonderful text for graduate students in particle and nuclear physics who are interested in learning the tools of heavy quark physics from two of the experts in the field. This book is a must for both particle theorists and experimentalists who are currently researching heavy quark systems." Physics Today
