HS 5 (University of Göttingen)

HS 5

University of Göttingen

Physics Department II. Institute of Physics Friedrich-Hund-Platz 1 37077 Göttingen
Description
The main objectives of the hadron collider physics school (HASCO) are introductory topics in elementary particle physics, in particular in hadron collider physics as relevant for research at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This includes lectures and tutorials on theoretical foundations of the Standard Model of elementary particle physics as well as experimental techniques to test it. Furthermore, a focus is placed on statistical data analysis and an introduction to the software package ROOT. In addition, students will have the opportunity to discuss state of the art measurements and results with senior scientists in the field. The target group are Bachelor, Master and early PhD students, i.e. mainly beginners in the field. The main activities will be lectures, tutorials, and student seminars. These will be complemented by excursions, and sport activities. The learning outcome will be better and more compatible theoretical knowledge of the fundamentals of elementary particle physics, but more importantly also hands-on experience with widely used software tools, statistics data analysis and experimental measurement techniques. The expected outputs are software programs, group presentations, and short summary reports. The academic achievements will be credited with ECTS points. The school will take place at the Georg-August-Universtät Göttingen from July 20th - August 1st 2014. Adress: Georg-August-Universtät Göttingen Faculty of Physics II. Institute of Physics Friedrich-Hund-Platz 1 D-37077 Göttingen Lectures will take place in lecture hall 5.
