The Standard Model of Particle Physics:
Lecture Course at Universität Heidelberg, Winter Term 2002/03
Theory and Experiment
Carlo Ewerz, Johanna Stachel
The course will consist of the main lectures (3 hours per week) plus
1 hour per week for additional material and exercises.
For the main lectures:
Wed 9-11, Fri 9-10
For the additional material and exercises:
großer Hörsaal, Philosophenweg 12
The course will be given in English.
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.
We will discuss the present status of the Standard Model,
open experimental questions, and some directions
of beyond the Standard Model physics.
The course will include
the necessary relativistic quantum field theory but with emphasis
on applications rather than formal details.
See here for a more detailed outline.
We propose that you try to solve these
examples and problems.
The solutions of selected problems will
be explained in the "Additional Material and Exercises" part of the course.
Physik V (Nuclear and Particle Physics) and Theoretische Physik III (Quantum Mechanics) or equivalent.
cover the essential material from quantum mechanics and
The necessary basics of relativistic quantum
mechanics will be provided in the "Additional Material" part of the course.
There are many good books on almost every aspect of the Standard Model
and of gauge field theory in general. It is probably a matter of taste which
See here for a list of books which we propose.
