Abstract:

"This book tells the story of all the achievements in solving the problem of the missing antiparticles. It is written by Prof. Guennadi Borissov, an international expert in this subject. Reading this book does not require any specialist knowledge of physics. All phenomena observed in the microworld of particles are explained in simple terms using well-known examples from ordinary life. Starting by describing and discussing the main properties of particles and antiparticles, the book details the important stages in the research that have brought scientists closer to solving one of the greatest enigmas of nature"--
