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.

Topics to be discussed:
Relativistic quantum mechanics, relativistic quantum fields, gauge theory of electroweak interactions, quantum chromodynamics, CP violation, neutrino physics, physics beyond the Standard Model. 
See here for a more details outline (preliminary). 

Prerequisites:
Lectures on Particle Physics, Quantum Mechanics, and Electrodynamics or equivalent. Revision notes cover the essential material from quantum mechanics and special relativity.
