Particle Physics at Colliders and in the High Energy Universe

Time: Monday, 2 to 4:00 p.m.
Location: PH 127 , TUM Physik-Department I

Lecturer: Dr. Frank Simon and PD Dr. Béla Majorovits

This lecture provides an introduction to modern particle physics at the interface of accelerator-based experiments and astro-particle physics. It covers:

  • Current topics in particle physics at the highest energy with a thorough discussion of the experimental methods, including: The Standard Model, the Higgs Boson, Physics beyond the Standard Model and a general introduction to high-energy proton-proton collisions
  • An introduction to cosmology
  • High-energy processes in the early Universe from thermal freeze-out to the cosmic microwave background
  • Design and technology of the Large Hadron Collider and the corresponding experiments
  • Particle acceleration in the Universe
