Particle Physics Textbook

  1. Aug 13, 2012 #1
    I want to study the standard model of particle physics and i want to use some event generator software (Pythia, CompHep, ... ), I have

    Introduction to Particle Physics by Griffth

    Is this enough to learn the Standard Model, I have some basics in Quantum Mechanics

    Any Recommendations ?

    If you don't know quantum field theory, then I think Griffiths is a fine choice.
