What exactly do you mean by classical book ?
It sure can't be about classical physics...
For QM : Bransden and Joachain
For QFT : QFT in a Nutshell by A Zee
Marlon,i think you missinterpreted his words:"classical book" on "particle physics"...
My advice:Use good books on QM & QFT to get aquainted to the topic of quantum fields & particles.Then u can go to Aichinson & Hey,D.J.Griffiths and others...
Also check out Cahn and Goldhaber's, The Experimental Foundations of Particle Physics -- covers 1895 (X rays, and the electron) to 1983 (W Boson), with many important original papers, and solid discussion of the theoretial and experimental issues. My copy is a bit old, and there well may be a more updated version.
As an introductory review, I would recommend :
Quarks and Leptons
An Introductory Course in Modern Particle Physics
Halzen & Martin
Although, if you lean towards theory, you might prefer Zee's nutshell.
Again for experimentalist, if you are already more advanced :
Dynamics of the Standard Model
Cambridge Monographs on Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics and Cosmology
John F. Donoghue, Eugene Golowich, Barry R. Holstein
Without further details, if you like theory (all Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics from which you could in principle pick any volume, they are all excellent. Some are better ) you must really like theory to go into that
Gauge Field Theories
By master Steven Weinberg :
The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume 1, Foundations
The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume 2, Modern Applications
and if you are still willing to go further :
The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume 3, Supersymmetry
Some of you think there is not worse ?
There is, and it's free :
have fun at Warren Siegel's web page and find out
also here : Fields
Last and worse of all : if you cannot help axiomatizing anything in your life, if you reduct categories of super-morphisms on a curved twistor space for breakfast (well, in that case, never mind, just explain it to the rest of us ), take a glance at what people like Witten can write out, for us regular human beings it's hard to swallow :
1996-97 Quantum Field Theory program at IAS
WOW, what a summary, Humanino,...glad to have you back on board...
J'espère vraiment que la vie se passe assez bien pour toi??
Comment vas-tu...et le doctorat ???
I'm looking for Pokorski's book.Hopefully,it will meet with my standards...
thank you very much!
I'm now reading Weinberg' QFT
Have you ever heard Weak interaction by H.Geoge?
Nope,Okun and Bailin have written good books on weak interactions,though...
That is just a GREAT BOOK!!! :!!) Thank you,Humanino!
P.S.Marlon,it's really awesome...
You probably mean Georgi.
