Target group 
Masterâ€™s Programme in Theoretical and Computational Methods is responsible for the course.
Modules where the course belong to:
 TCM300 Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Computational Methods
 PAP300 Advanced Studies in Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences
Optional for:
 Study Track in Particle Physics and Cosmology
The course is available to students from other degree programmes. 
Timing 
After QFT I has been completed.
The course will be offered in spring term. 
Learning outcomes 
Understanding and practice of advanced concepts of quantum field theory such as renormalization, loop expansion, regularization techniques, anomalies, the Standard Model, CP violation. The student is prepared to contribute to original research in particle physics. 
Completion methods 
Class attendance is strongly encouraged. Homework is assigned once a week and contributes 25% to the final grade, while the final exam contributes 75%. There are bonus points for inclass activities. 
Prerequisites 
QFT I 
Recommended optional studies
