An Introducing Graphic Guide to partner the perennial bestseller Introducing Quantum Theory.

What really happens at the most fundamental levels of nature?

Introducing Particle Physics explores the very frontiers of our knowledge, even showing how particle physicists are now using theory and experiment to probe our very concept of what is real.

From the earliest history of the atomic theory through to supersymmetry, micro-black holes, dark matter, the Higgs boson, and the possibly mythical graviton, practising physicist and CERN contributor Tom Whyntie gives us a mind-expanding tour of cutting-edge science.

Featuring brilliant illustrations from Oliver Pugh, Introducing Particle Physics is a unique tour through the most astonishing and challenging science being undertaken today.

About the Author

Tom Whyntie is currently based at CERN working on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, a 12,500 tonne, cathedral-sized 'digital camera' one hundred metres under the ground. Tom has received awards from the Institute of Physics for his lecturing, performing in locations as varied as Cambridge, London, Portsmouth, Dublin, Enfield and Romania and has written for the Guardian.

Oliver Pugh's most recent book was Introducing Infinity.

A Quantum Leap for Cartoons

4

It's a broad introduction for those bewildered by the jargon and labyrinth of ideas. The information is concise and the cartoons and other illustrations help the presentation greatly.
