The Standard Model of Particle Physics


The Standard Model of Particle Physics

Prof. H.-J. Pirner
Prof. H.-C. Schultz-Coulon

Philosopheweg 12, kleiner HS
Wednesdays, 9 - 11 am
Fridays, 9 - 11 am

Tutorial A: Tuesdays, 2:15 pm
Tutorial B: Tuesdays, 4:15 pm
[Philosophenweg 12, SR]

The course will cover the Standard Model of Particle Physics from the theoretical and from the experimental perspective. The gauge theories of electroweak and strong interactions and their experimental tests will be described. The present status of the Standard Model, open experimental questions, and some directions of beyond the Standard Model physics are discussed.
