Unique in its coverage of all aspects of modern particle physics, this textbook provides a clear connection between the theory and recent experimental results, including the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN. It provides a comprehensive and self-contained description of the Standard Model of particle physics suitable for upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students studying experimental particle physics. Physical theory is introduced in a straightforward manner with full mathematical derivations throughout. Fully-worked examples enable students to link the mathematical theory to results from modern particle physics experiments. End-of-chapter exercises, graded by difficulty, provide students with a deeper understanding of the subject. Online resources available at www.cambridge.org/MPP feature password-protected fully-worked solutions to problems for instructors, numerical solutions and hints to the problems for students and PowerPoint slides and JPEGs of figures from the book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This advanced undergraduate textbook provides an excellent introduction to one of the most exciting areas of modern physics. It combines a pedagogical 'from first principles' approach with a comprehensive survey of the latest developments in particle physics, including the recent discovery of the Higgs boson. Thoroughly recommended for both students and teachers alike.' James Stirling, Imperial College London
'Professor Thomson has written a great textbook on modern particle physics (including a masterful exposition of the discovery of the Higgs boson) that provides a professional introduction to the field, suitable for upper-division undergraduate as well as graduate courses. His distinctive presentation style combines clarity with [an] admirable level of rigor. The book is richly illustrated with helpful diagrams and tables, and is destined to be a favorite of both students and instructors alike.' Dmitry Budker, University of California, Berkeley
'Mark Thomson has written a wonderful new introductory textbook on particle physics ... [it] is well written ... easy to read, with clear pedagogical lines of reasoning, and the layout is pleasing ... as I am teaching an introduction to theory this autumn, I will definitely be using this book.' CERN Courier
'... gem of a book ... excellent and highly readable ... well structured with useful chapter summaries and many good student exercises with on-line solutions. It is thoroughly recommended.' The Observatory
'... this book has my highest recommendation. In its effective, clear and comprehensive treatment of so much detailed material, it represents a remarkable achievement on the part of its author, and is likely to become a standard work to put into the hands of new graduate students in particle physics. Their supervisors will do well to buy it too!' Peter J. Bussey, Contemporary Physics
