Description: 
The course will cover the development and structure of the Standard
Model via the Standard Model Lagrangian. This is not intended to be
a course in formal Quantum Field Theory, but the main results of QFT
will be introduced to provide a rigorous framework in which to discuss
the construction and implications of the Standard Model. A rough outline of the course is as follows:

Assignments:  Assignment #1 
Assignment #2  
Assignment #3  
Assignment #4  
Assignment #5  
Assignment #6  
Resources:  This link provides a list of many wonderful properties of Pauli and Dirac matrices. 
This link describes how to use the PCN computers to solve problems numerically. This link provides an introduction to using ROOT. Here are examples describing how to use Tracer to evaluate traces of products of gamma matrices.  
Project:  There will be a final inclass presentation on a relevant topic of current interest. 
Lecture notes:  Can be found here.
