The systematic bottom-up approach provides the appropriate framework for interpreting measurements that will be performed to better understand the physics of mass generation in the universe. No knowledge of quantum field theory is required other than familiarity with effective Lagrangians and Feynmann diagrams.
The book helps to better understand the physics of mass generation in
the universe, one of the hot topics in the area of elementary particle
