    One thought on “Higgs: inventarea și descoperirea „Particulei lui Dumnezeu“”

    1. I knew many individual pieces of the story of how the Higgs particle was discovered, but when I read this book I found that I didn't understand the overall picture nearly as well as I'd thought I did. Baggott does a very good job of tying it all together and showing you how a major scientific theory grows from a crazy idea you can't even get published into something that makes front-page news when it's empirically validated. He seems to know the science well - he's written a couple of other book [...]

    2. Whenever someone famous dies or there’s a major royal event you will see a book arrive in the shops with undue haste. It’s hard to imagine it wasn’t thrown together with minimum effort – and with equally minimal quality. So when I saw that Jim Baggott had produced a book on the Higgs boson all of five weeks after the likely detection was announced following several years work by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, it seemed likely that this too was a botched rush job. But the reality is v [...]

    3. WARNING: My opinion of ‘Higgs: The Invention and Discovery of the ‘God Particle” by Jim Baggott is based on the sample of the book, which includes Prologue: 'Form and Substance', as well as on an executive summary I found @ newbooksinbrief.wordpress.What I wanted from this book is a real explanation of what the Higgs field is and how the so-called 'massless particles' interact with it and acquire mass. In order to make up my mind whether to buy this book or not, I decided to 'taste' it fi [...]

    4. *A full executive summary of this book is available here: newbooksinbrief/2012/09/02Up until very recently, news out of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) regarding the progress of the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) had been slow in coming, and nary a major discovery had been announced. On July 4th, though, all of that changed. As on that day CERN announced the discovery of nothing less than the Higgs boson, the 'God particle'.The potential discovery of the Higgs boson had be [...]

    5. Jim Baggott once wrote a lovely book about The Meaning of Quantum Theory (from Planck all the way to Bell) in which he said that you can't understand the physics without the philosophy. That was true of the early twentieth century and its physicist-philosophers (Bohr, Einstein, Heisenberg, Schrödinger) who laid the foundations of modern physics. In this blow by blow account of the standard model and the search for the Higgs, we see how the second half of the twentieth century saw the rise of a [...]

    6. Too brief for a history, and not good for learning any new physics. I'll stick to Abraham Pais' Inward Bound for now.

    7. Bardzo dobrze się czyta. Szczegółowo opowiada o historii odkryć cząstek fundamentalnych i praw nimi rządzących, prowadzących do odkrycia mechanizmu Higgsa i jego bozonu. O samym odkryciu już tak wiele jednak nie ma, więc tytuł trochę zwodzi. Nadal nie wiem jak się ma grawitacja i pole Higgsa, oraz jak odkrycie bozonu Higgsa ma się na przykład do teorii strun.

    8. Here's how much I loved this book. Within a week of finishing the copy I'd borrowed from the library (indeed, even before I'd returned said copy), I went out and bought a copy of my own. Because I need this on my shelves. Why? Well, as someone with an M.S. in physics, and whose research appointment as in relativistic heavy ion collions, I'm more frequently called upon than most to explain things like the Higgs boson. But before a month ago, any such request would be met with a deer in the headli [...]

    9. Not a bad book, but I don't feel it will stand the test of time once the current excitement over the discovery of the Higgs boson is over.It makes a good start with a discussion of Noether's Theorem about the connections between conservation laws and symmetries, but the discussion is not entirely convincing to a non-physicist - at least, it wasn't to this particular non-physicist. Subsequent references to the theorem hence feel like they have to be taken on trust, and this is not helped by the a [...]

    10. Read this in preparation for an upcoming discussion on the Higgs Boson given by my local science club. This book gives a wonderful and engaging history of the physical, mathematical and intellectual hunt to complete the Standard Model of the atom, including the quest to discover if Peter Higgs was right all those years ago about the existence of a field which essentially gives matter its mass. While "Higgs" is a fairly easy read, in terms of writing style, I wouldn't recommend it for people who [...]

    11. Ho letto questo libro dopo aver affrontato altri libri sul tema, come "La particella alla fine dell'universo. La caccia al bosone di Higgs e le nuove frontiere della fisica" di Sean Carroll Il libro é interessante poiché percorre le varie scoperte avvenute nel corso del '900 relativamente alla fisica particellare, e si esaminano le varie previsioni talvolta smentite o comprovate decine di anni dopo man mano che gli acceleratori di particelle venivano sviluppati e aumentavano in potenza Si perc [...]

    12. I got a preview copy of the book. Thanks to the publisher for sending it across.This book explains the historical developments leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson. The author has attempted to explain all the technical concepts in a very simple to understand language, still at various places I have felt that the book has become a little bit technical in details and needs some background in cosmology and quantum mechanics.The Higgs boson is part of the mechanism that explains how all the m [...]

    13. A good description how quantum physics evolved up till now.The masses of the quarks are quite smalls, accounting for just one per cent of the mass of a proton or neutron. The other 99-precent is derived from the energy carried by the massless gluons, which flit between quarks and bind them together. All the matter in the world might consist of quarks and leptons, but it owes its very substance to the energy gained through interactions with the Higgs field and the exchange of gluons. Without thes [...]

    14. Interessante, perché oltre a raccontare le scoperte delle varie particelle e tutto quello che gli gira intorno tipo quark, gluoni, muoni, fotoni, etcc. l'autore presenta anche i vari autori delle scoperte, con i loro lati umani e con tutto lo sforzo che é costato arrivare alla comprensione che ci doveva essere una particella, il famoso bosone di Higgs appunto, che faceva parte di quel meccanismo che spiega come si forma la massa di tutte le particelle dell'universo, da qui il nome di "particel [...]

    15. First few chapters were pleasant introduction into particle phyisics. There were nice stories about some fundamental discoveries realy comprehensive for general reader. Later it turns to be just a LHC diary, hard to follow for a non-physicist like myself. The author talks about ups and downs in theories he brings without much explanation. Most of the book then becomes just daily news from the last few decades of CERN.

    16. This book was interesting but I'm not great with quantum physics so it all seemed a bit over my head. I persevered and definitely gained something from the read. I enjoyed the history summary of this very complicated field. And I'd wondered about the Higgs bosun, been interested in learning more about CERN too. Maybe I will try to learn more.

    17. it tells you about the history ,the people ,the place which lead to the discovery of the Higgs Boson ,but the physics related were not discussed in detail vertheless it is still a good book for layman to learn the story about the greatest discovery in physics in this decade.

    18. Less about technical physics and more of a narrative history of the work that lead up to the excitement and importance of the Higgs discovery. Despite being jargon heavy the book flows very well and is an enjoyable to read.

    19. This is okay review of a lot of things ( just like the Nicolas Mee book was ) One ( 1 ) page that's might actually tell you a little about what the Higgs actually is/and/or does. ( page 88 ) But that was a helpful page !

    20. Gives a very good introduction to the Standard Model of particle physics, as well as the descriptions of each supportive experiment.

    21. Very easy reading introduction to the Standard Model (Particle Physics), the Higgs field and the Higgs Boson. I really enjoyed this.

    22. The quest for the ‘smallest elemental particle in the universe’ continues—To be (found), or not to be (found), that is the question.

    23. Cuốn sách được dịch rất tốt, ngôn ngữ không phá khó hiểu và để có thể nắm được hết các ý của cuốn sách thì theo tôi phải có được một số kiến thức cơ sở của vật lí hiện đại.

    24. Very interesting and easy to read. Everything is explained in easy words and I think everybody with a high school education should be able to understand it.

    25. Too complicated one needs a much profound knowledge in order for understanding most of the book; however, some information is indeed relevant and interesting.
