Description:

This course is a continuation of PHYS 564. Therefore, it is expected that the students are familiar with particle detection techniques, statistical interpretation of data and with Quantum Electrodynamics. We will study the current experimental status of the Standard Model of particles and forces, possible theoretical extensions beyond the Standard Model, and related experimental searches. The efforts to construct a theory which unifies all interactions, including gravity, is discussed. The topics covered include CP violation, neutrino physics, QCD, hadron collider physics and data analysis techniques.
