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:
|Resources:||This link provides a list 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 in-class presentation on a relevant topic of current interest.|
|Lecture notes:||Can be found here.|
