Summary

The goal of this course is to explain the conceptual and mathematical bases of the Standard Model of fundamental interactions and to illustrate in detail its phenomenological consequences.

Content

 

- Non-abelian gauge theories

- Higgs mechanism and massive gauge theories

- Quarks and Leptons

- Basic electroweak phenomenology

- The flavour structure: quark masses and mixing

- Strong interactions

- Basic flavour phenomenology

- The Standard Model as an Effective Field Theory

Keywords

fundamental interactions, particle phenomenology

gauge theories, Higgs mechanism,

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Relativistic Quantum Fields I et II, Advanced Quantum Mechanics,

Advanced Quantum Field Theory,

 

Recommended courses

General Relativity, Cosmology

Expected student activities

Appreciate the conceptual foundations of the Standard Model as a theory of fundamental interactions and quantitavely understand its phenomenological success. Be able to concretely apply the Standard Model theory to the prediction of physical processes.
