    Where can someone find the entire standard model?

    What i ment by standard model was the page of calculations.

    The entire page saying how they worked it out or something.

    So was any of the pages which I linked to of any interest?

    There is a good popular book called "the theory of almost everything" by Robert Oerter which outlines the history and formulation of the standard model.

    Are you talking about the standard model Lagrangian?

    Try searching google for it.

    Technically, the **FULL** standard model - everything about everything about particle physics (and more!) is at www-pdg.lbl.gov. This is the particle physics almanac. But it's VERY technical, I'm not sure what it is you're looking for. If you're just a casual person, this is not the place for you. If you're a student or researcher, then this place is heaven! ;-)

    The Standard Model (SM) isn't a page of calculations.

    If you want to understand it you first need an appreciation of electrodynamics, relativity and quantum mechanics for a start. You then need to master relativistic quantum mechanics while in your spare time learning very advanced calculus, linear algebra, ODE's, PDE's and complex analysis...oh, some group theory wouldn't go amiss. Then you could tackle quantum field theory, and after at least 6 months of hard work you might say you had a good feel for the standard model.

    :)
