The goal of this course is to explain the conceptual and mathematical bases of the Standard Model of fundamental interactions and to illustrate in detail its phenomenological consequences.




fundamental interactions, particle phenomenology

gauge theories, Higgs mechanism,

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Relativistic Quantum Fields I et II, Advanced Quantum Mechanics,

Advanced Quantum Field Theory,


Recommended courses

General Relativity, Cosmology

Expected student activities

Appreciate the conceptual foundations of the Standard Model as a theory of fundamental interactions and quantitavely understand its phenomenological success. Be able to concretely apply the Standard Model theory to the prediction of physical processes.
