Cursusdoelen
After completion of the course, the student:
  1. has in-depth knowledge of the concept of modern particle physics
  2. knows the principles of scattering theory, and how to Fermi's golden rule leads to a prescription for the calculation of cross sections and decay widths using Feynman diagrams
  3. is able to apply scattering theory to quantum electrodynamics, including the weak interaction, leading to the calculation of the muon decay width
  4. knows the concept of local gauge invariance and is able to apply it to describe the unified electroweak interaction
  5. understands the theory of electroweak symmetry breaking in the Standard Model, Higgs boson production and detection at the future LHC pp collider
     
Inhoud
 In the first period this lecture will take place at the NIKHEF research centre in Amsterdam, in the second period it will take place at the UU.
The lectures start with an introduction into the concept of modern particle physics. After that scattering theory is introduced at the hand of Fermi's golden rule leading to a prescription for the calculation of cross sections and decay widths using Feynman diagrams. 
The scattering theory is then applied to the case of quantum electrodynamics, first for spinless particles and then for particles with spin 1/2. The weak interaction is discussed leading to the calculation of the muon decay width. The concept of local gauge invariance is introduced and applied to describe the unified electroweak interaction resulting in the calculation of the process: e^ + e^- -> (gamma, Z) -> mu^+ mu^-.
In the second part of the course some 'hot' issues in modern particle physics are presented:
The Higgs Boson: electroweak symmetry breaking in the Standard Model,Higgs boson production and detection at the future LHC pp collider.
Introduction in the theory of the strong interaction.
