Description
The goal of the school is to give a detailed overview of particle physics from the basics of Standard Model phenomenology to the most important areas where significant progress has been achieved recently. This year the school will cover both the energy and the intensity frontiers, including lectures on experimental techniques for small scale experiments and on formal developments in quantum field theory.


TOPICS:

  • The SM and Flavor
  • Neutrinos
  • Perturbative QCD
  • Lattice QCD
  • Physics of the Early Universe
  • Beyond the SM at the TeV scale
  • Dark Matter and Axions
  • Small Scale Experiments
  • Theory developments on Amplitudes
