Summary:
"Understanding the physics of heavy quarks gives physicists the opportunity to test the predictions of Quantum Chromodynamics and the Standard Model." "The book begins with a review of the standard model, followed by the basics of heavy quark spin-flavor symmetry and how it can be applied to the classification of states, decays and fragmentation. Heavy quark effective theory is then developed, including the

"The book begins with a review of the standard model, followed by the basics of heavy quark spin-flavor symmetry and how it can be applied to the classification of states, decays and fragmentation. Heavy quark effective theory is then developed, including the radiative and 1/m[subscript Q] corrections, and applied to the study of hadron masses, form factors, and inclusive decay rates. The authors also discuss the application of chiral perturbation theory to heavy hadrons."."
