Item description for Fundamental Forces of Nature: The Story of Gauge Fields by Kerson Huang...

Gauge fields are the messengers carrying signals between elementary particles, enabling them to interact with each other. Originating at the level of quarks, these basic interactions percolate upwards, through nuclear and atomic physics, through chemical and solid state physics, to make our everyday world go round. This book tells the story of gauge fields, from Maxwell's 1860 theory of electromagnetism to the 1954 theory of Yang and Mills that underlies the Standard Model of elementary particle theory. In the course of the narration, the author introduces people and events in experimental and theoretical physics that contribute to ideas that have shaped our conception of the physical world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fundamental Forces of Nature: The Story of Gauge Fields?

Excellent Popular Treatment of Gauge Fields  Aug 9, 2008
This book is an excellent review of gauge fields. The scope is from Maxwell to renormalization groups, with an epilogue that diagrammatically sums up the last few chapters. The book is a popularization, not a text book. It is comparable to Zee's "Fearful Symmetry". If you don't know what gauge fields, QED and QCD are about, this is probably not the place to start. But if you'd like a very readable overview, with equations, but without problems, I recommend this one highly.
