Item description for In Conclusion: A Collection of Summary Talks in High Energy Physics by James D. Bjorken...
This invaluable volume is a collection of conference talks by James D Bjorken, who has made a huge impact on particle physics and the development of the Standard Model. The earliest of these talks was given in 1965, and the latest in 1990. The book provides, from a personal perspective, a glimpse of the complex evolution of the field over those highly productive decades. In Conclusion: A Collection of Summary Talks in High Energy Physics is aimed at a broad spectrum of particle physicists, both experimental and theoretical, but will benefit students as well.

More About James D. Bjorken
James D Bjorken obtained his BSc from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1956 and his PhD in Physics from Stanford University in 1959. Since 1998 he has been Professor Emeritus at Stanford.In the period 1960-70 Prof Bjorken coauthored with Sidney Drell the pair of textbooks Relativistic Quantum Mechanics and Relativistic Quantum Fields; and, with Sheldon Glashow, presented arguments for the existence of a fourth kind of quark, suggesting its name, "charmed." In 1970-80 he contributed critical reviews and summaries of the development of the Standard Model. In the next decade Prof Bjorken built a hydrodynamic model of central particle production in ion-ion collisions; and, as Fermilab's Associate Director for Physics, served as liaison and ombudsman between experimental teams, laboratory management and program
