Elina Fuchs (CERN)

The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics is incomplete because it cannot account e.g. for the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe, it does not provide a Dark Matter candidate and does not explain the hierarchy of scales between the Higgs mass and the Planck scale of gravity. Therefore we will study extensions of the SM that address these shortcomings, as well as search strategies for the manifestations of such models. This lecture prepares the students to start research in particle physics.

  • Block lecture and exercises for one week with 1.5 LVS.
  • The lecture will take place at CERN, Geneva.
  • The lecture will be given an English. Questions can also be asked in German.
  • This lecture covers several models and methods of particle physics beyond the Standard Model (SM), such as extended Higgs sectors, Dark Matter, naturalness, and experimental searches.
  • The program also contains a guided tour and visits to the CERN exhibition (tour, Microcosm and Universe of Particles im Globe).
