The Resource An Introduction to Relativistic Processes and the Standard Model of Electroweak Interactions, by Carlo M. Becchi, Giovanni Ridolfi, (electronic resource)
An Introduction to Relativistic Processes and the Standard Model of Electroweak Interactions, by Carlo M. Becchi, Giovanni Ridolfi, (electronic resource)
 Summary
 These lectures are meant to be a reference and handbook for an introductory course in Theoretical Particle Physics, suitable for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. Their purpose is to reconcile theoretical rigour and completeness with a careful analysis of more phenomenological aspects of the physics. They aim at filling the gap between quantum field theory textbooks and purely phenomenological treatments of fundamental interactions. The first part provides an introduction to scattering in relativistic quantum field theory. Thanks to an original approach to relativistic processes, the relevant computational techniques are derived cleanly and simply in the semiclassical approximation. The second part contains a detailed presentation of the gauge theory of electroweak interactions with particular focus to the processes of greatest phenomenological interest. The main novelties of the present second edition are a more complete discussion of relativistic scattering theory and an expansion of the study of the corrections to the semiclassical approximation, including important processes in LHC physics.  The extension of the standard model to include neutrino masses and oscillations is also discussed, and updated with new results
