Faculty of Mathematics

 

There are four core courses which are designed to provide a linked introduction to High Energy Physics: Symmetries, Fields and Particles, Quantum Field Theory, Advanced Quantum Field Theory and The Standard Model. The remaining courses extend these in various more specialized directions. A good understanding of the course Quantum Field Theory is essential for most of the other courses. The Standard Model course assumes knowledge of the course Symmetries, Fields and Particles.

Please read this Introduction and pre-requisites for the Particle Physics, Quantum Fields and Strings courses as well as the detailed course descriptions below.
