The Review summarizes much of particle physics and cosmology. Using data from previous editions, plus 2,873 new measurements from 758 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons and therecently discovered Higgs boson, leptons, quarks, mesons,and baryons. We summarize searches for hypotheticalparticles such as supersymmetric particles, heavy bosons, axions, dark photons, etc. Particle properties and searchlimits are listed in Summary Tables. We give numerous tables, figures, formulae, and reviews of topics such as Higgs Boson Physics, Supersymmetry, Grand Unified Theories, Neutrino Mixing, Dark Energy, Dark Matter, Cosmology,Particle Detectors, Colliders, Probability and Statistics. Among the 118 reviews are many that are new or heavilyrevised, including a new review on Neutrinos in Cosmology.Starting with this edition, theReviewis divided into two volumes. Volume 1 includes the Summary Tablesand all review articles. Volume 2 consists of the Particle Listings. Review articles that were previously part of theListings are now included in volume 1.
