Introduction to Young-tableaux and weight diagrams?

  1. Aug 3, 2015 #1
    I am looking for a short pedagogical introduction to Young-tableaux and weight diagrams and the relationship between them, which contains many detailled and worked out examples of how these methods are applied in physics, such as in the context of the standard model and beyond for example.

    I am rather looking for a resource that is dedicated specifically to this topics, which I can easily print out, conversely to a heavy general group-theory textbook.

    What don't you like about the PDG treatment?

    The only reasonable discussion I am aware off can be found in the appendix in Sternbergs book on "group theory and physics".
