A unique and comprehensive presentation of modern particle physics which stores the background knowledge on the big open questions beyond the standard model, as the implications of the evidence of the Higgs–boson, of neutrino physics, or the nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. In each topic, key ideas are introduced and basic formulas to understand phenomenological outcomes are derived. Experimental techniques to detect them are also explained. Finally, most recent data and future prospects are reviewed. The book can be used to

give a quick view of specialized topics to high energy and theoretical physicists as well as to astronomers and graduate students.

Yorikiyo Nagashima is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Physics of Osaka University, Japan. An organizer of international conferences, he is also a member of the most important collaboration groups in his field of expertise, including those related to neutrino research. Professor Nagashima was the spokesman of the

VENUS group, one of the major detectors of the Japanese first collider accelerator TORISTAN, where he served the first and second term at the start of the project.

Professor Nagashima has authored or co–authored almost 300 papers, some of them cited up to 250 times.
