Nontrivializing triviality..and vice versa.

Los Alamos Science

Continuing the expository theme of my last post, I want to bring to your attention a collection of beautiful, crisp and entertaining articles by Richard Slansky in a 1984 publication of Los Alamos Science. They are available at

and are (in my opinion) must readings for students of theoretical physics, particularly those specializing in high energy theory, string theory, etc. In case you didn’t know, Slansky is also the author of a definitive review on group theory, which is a standard resource for particle physicists. It is worth having a printout of the review at your desk (and also an online copy in your tablet, smartphone, etc.) if you are interested in doing anything serious with group theory.

I should also take this opportunity to bring a list of Physics articles that have appeared over the years in Los Alamos Science. The comprehensive list of these articles with hyperlinks to online versions is at
