Elementary Particle Phenomenology
Physics 661 begins a survey of the
phenomena of the elementary particles of matter
and their interactions.
For the winter term we will study (time permitting):
- Quarks and Leptons
- Interactions and Fields
- Invariance Principles and Conservation Laws
- Quarks in Hadrons
- Lepton and Quark Scattering
- Quark Interactions and QCD
These topics cover important introductory material in particle physics. Throughout the course, the interplay between theory and experiment will be emphasized. This first quarter course ( Physics 661 ) begins the study of the field of particle physics, with further introductory material and applications to follow in the spring term, Physics 662.
