16:750:694 ADVANCED TOPICS IN HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS (3)

  • Course Description:

    This is a special topics seminar aimed at 1st and 2nd year graduate students who intend to pursue a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics. The course is intended to bridge the gap in knowledge between formal theoretical physics (i.e. QFT) and experimental practice. Particle interactions in matter and detector techniques will be emphasized in relation to the historic development of our understanding of fundamental physics. Students will be expected to do the reading and associated problems prior to class, where the readings will be discussed in a seminar-style format.
