Phy612 is an advanced course in Modern Elementary Particle Physics.
The course is an overview of the field with special emphasis on
connection with existing and future experiments in particle physics and
some implications in astrophysics and cosmology.
Although QFT is not required for the course, some basic knowledge regarding
Feynman diagram techniques is recommended.
In particular, it will be useful for the students to have studied the
chapters 2-4 of Peskin & Schroeder or a similar level of QFT.
Here is a preliminary
for the course.
These are some of the references being used to prepare the lectures:
