Weak Interaction Guidance

  1. Nov 9, 2009 #1
    Hi,

    Im currently writing a theory section for the W and Z bosons mini thesis type project, im looking to fully cover the main topics in this area and am wondering if i am missing any or need to re-order things:

    Overview of elementary particles
    Symmetry and conservation laws
    Gauge theory
    Electroweak
    Grand unification theory
    Standard model

    This is my first jump into this area of physics so please excuse any errors! Any help or advice on this would be greatly apprecited, also any useful books/sources anyone has come across would also be invaluable!

    Thanks in advance

    I think that "Standard model" should come before "Grand unification theory."

    It makes more sense alright, cheers for picking that up

    New order:

    Overview of elementary particles
    Symmetry and conservation laws
    Gauge theory
    Electroweak
    Standard model
    Grand unification theory

    Do you think i would need to include anything extra or would this cover it nicely?
