Fortgeschrittenenpraktikum *** Advanced Particle Physics
The lecture introduces the modern concepts of the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Building upon the course “Experimentalphysik VI, Kern- und Teilchenphysik” Feynman-Diagrams are introduced and used to calculate scattering cross sections. The Mathematica program is introduced and used to perform such calculations efficiently in the exercises. The Higgs mechanism will be explained in detail as well as problems in the Standard model which motivate the search for new particles beyond the standard model. The lectures are complemented by exercise with the aim is to provide a solid foundation in particle physics.
