Derived from a course given at the University of Maryland for
advanced graduate students, this book deals with some of the latest
developments in our attempts to construct a unified theory of the
fundamental interactions of nature.; Among the topics covered are
spontaneous symmetry breaking, grand unified theories,
supersymmetry, and supergravity.; the book starts with a quick
review of elementary particle theory and continues with a
discussion of composite quarks, leptons, Higgs bosons, and CP
violation; it concludes with consideration of supersymmetric
unification schemes, in which bosons and leptons are considered in
some sense equivalent.; The third edition will be completely
revised and brought up to date, particularly by including
discussions of the many experimental developments in recent years.
