Winter term 2018/19: 

Particle Physics: Huge facilities, like the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, aim at revealing the innermost structures of matter and the fundamental forces acting on these elementary constituents. Over the past decades the standard model of particle physics has evolved from their findings, and its last piece, the Higgs particle, was discovered only recently.This lecture will provide an introduction to particle physics and its standard model and discuss some of the experimental methods used to detect and study elementary particles and their interactions. Finally, an outlook to phenomena and theory beyond the standard model of particle physics will be given. 

* Master of Science Physics, modules 731, 732 *                                                                                      * Master of Science Astrophysics, module PHY-735 *
