Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The lecture will cover advanced topics in theoretical Particle Physics with the goal of introducing the general context of the Standard Model and the effects from physics beyond the Standard Model and theoretical methods to calculate phenomenological predictions for collider processes accounting for the effects of the strong interactions within quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The lecture will be provided by two lecturers focusing on different aspects.

Topics include:

Part 1
- Review of the Standard Model of Elementary Particle Physics, Feynman Rules
- Concept of effective field theories and matching
- Standard Model as an Effective Theory
- Non-decoupling
Part 2
- Review of QCD
- Introduction to radiative corrections
- Renormalization of Quantum Chromodynamics
- Elementary processes in QCD; infrared divergences
- Elementary processes of the SM and phenomenology at hadron colliders

Further information on the lecture (modalities, lecture notes, recommended text book, exercise sheets, exams) will be provided on the moodle page of the lecture.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Active participation in the lecture part and regular presentations in the exercise part of the VU, a final project will be posed as a take-home exam at the ends of the two parts of the lecture.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The content of the lecture builds on advanced knowledge of the bachelor T lectures on mechanics, electrodynamics and quantum mechanics and the particle physics lectures "Introduction to Particle Physics” (bachelor), “Advance Particle Physics” (master-core) as important prerequisits. This means that you should have basic knowledge of the Standard Model of elementary particle physics (QCD, QED, electroweak interactions, Higgs mechanism), the Dirac equation formalism, and doing calculations in quantum field theory for observables such as cross sections and lifetimes.

Grades will be given based on presentation of homework exercises in the exercise sessions and the take-home exams. The exercises complement and extend/deepen the content of the lecture and are hence indispensable for mastering the subject and a positive evaluation.

Prüfungsstoff

Will be announced in due course.
