Quark and Lepton-Flavor Physics


Lecture for master and PhD students with specialization in Particle Physics.


Lecturer: U. Uwer uwer@physi.uni-heidelberg.de



Tuesdays, 14:15 - 16:00, Start:  April 21st, 2020


The examen will take place on Tuesday, Jul 28th, at 14:15 as an online examination. The details will be sent to all registered participants.


Attention: To minimize infection risks with the corona virus the lecture will be held as "tele-lecture" using the conference tool heiconf supplied by the university:





The lecture introduces the concepts of flavor physics and covers the physics of electro-weak interactions between quarks and leptons. The course adresses theortical and experimental aspects:

  • Introduction to flavor physics in the standard model
  • Experimental evidence of quarks and leptons
  • Quark flavor physics: Meson mixing, CP violation, rare decays
  • Lepton flavor physics: lepton flavor violation, electric and magnetic moments
  • Neutrinos: masses and oscillations


Depending on the conference tool used an invitation by eMail needs to be sent. It is therefore recommended to register for the lecture.
