Part III (MMath/MASt)

There are four core courses which are designed to provide a linked introduction to High Energy Physics: Symmetries, Particles and Fields; 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, Particles and Fields.

Please read the introduction and pre-requisites for the Particle Physics and Quantum Fields subject area as well as the detailed course descriptions below.
