Dr. P. Fileviez Perez

Prof. Dr. H.-C. Schultz-Coulon


Lectures: INF 308, HS 2

Wednesday, 11:15 am - 01:00 pm
Friday, 9:15 am - 11:00 am

Tutorials: INF 227, SR 2.403

Monday, 02:15 pm - 04:00 pm


In this course we discuss the Standard Model of Particle Physics from the theoretical and experimental perspectives. The gauge theories of the electroweak and strong interactions and their experimental tests are discussed in detail. The current status of the Standard Model and some directions for physics beyond the Standard Model are discussed.
