This biennial Review summarizes much of particle physics. Using data from previous editions, plus 2633 new
measurements from 689 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons, leptons, quarks,
mesons, and baryons. We also summarize searches for hypothetical particles such as Higgs bosons, heavy neutrinos,
and supersymmetric particles. All the particle properties and search limits are listed in Summary Tables. We also
give numerous tables, figures, formulae, and reviews of topics such as the Standard Model, particle detectors,
probability, and statistics. Among the 110 reviews are many that are new or heavily revised including those on
CKM quark-mixing matrix, Vud & Vus , Vcb & Vub , top quark, muon anomalous magnetic moment, extra dimensions,
particle detectors, cosmic background radiation, dark matter, cosmological parameters, and big bang cosmology. 80Mb. |
