Attendance and participation
Estimated Weekly Independent Workload (in hours)
- The SM & its accidental symmetry structure, plus technical naturalness & the LEP paradox & some Higgs physics.
- Supersymmetry some basics & phenomenology.
- Extra dimension physics with emphasis on warped models & composite Higgs.
- Collider phenomenology.
- If time permits: relaxion stuff and other recent developments.
Upon successful completion of the course the students will be able to:
Acquire some of the basic knowledge related to modern particle physics.
An updated list will be given a few weeks before the beginning of the semester.
