Shattered Symmetry

Group Theory From the Eightfold Way to the Periodic Table

Pieter Thyssen and Arnout Ceulemans

  • Offers three books in one: a primer on group theory for science students and researchers, an introduction to dynamic symmetry, and an account of the intellectual history of the periodic table
  • One of the unique features of this book is the treatment of the world of quarks (physics, Eightfold Way) and the world of atoms (chemistry, periodic table) in one book, with a common theoretical language.
