Master’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
- Study Track in Particle Physics and Cosmology
The course is available to students from other degree programmes.
After QFT I has been completed.
The course will be offered in spring term.
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.
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 in-class activities.
|Recommended optional studies
Introductory Particle Physics; Higgs Physics; Supersymmetry; Thermal Field Theory.
Loop calculations and regularizations, renormalization, anomalies, non-Abelian gauge theories, the Standard Model, CP violation, effective field theory, flavor and CP problems in the Standard Model, physics beyond the Standard Model
