Course Description

**Physics 662**
continues the survey of the phenomena of the elementary particles of matter and their interactions begun in Physics 661. During this term we will study:

- Weak Interactions
- Electroweak Interactions and the Standard Model
- Physics Beyond the Standard Model
- Particle Physics and Cosmology
- Experimental methods

These topics include many of the fundamental issues of modern particle physics. Throughout the course, the interplay between theory and experiment will be emphasized.

Prerequisites

This course is the second quarter of a two quarter sequence
covering the phenomenology of elementary particle physics.
The course is
intended for students
with an interest in the underlying theoretical basis of
particle physics theory and experiment. Students should have
