What are some book titles that cover ALL or most of the types of particles that exist

  1. May 20, 2010 #1
    In the following article, they mention some different types of matter, and particle accelorators, is there a book or some resource that defines all of the types of known particles, so that the article is much more clearer?

    I'd recommend David Griffiths' An Introduction to Elementary Particles.

    This book is aimed at first/second year undergraduates though, so if you're looking for something a little more accessible to the layman I'd suggest Cindy Schwarz's A Tour of the Subatomic Zoo: A Guide to Particle Physics.

    Happy reading :).
