Areas of Expertise
- String Theory
- Quantum Field Theory
The student will learn basics of Quantum Mechanis, basically, the infinite square well, some problems with simple potentials to sove the Scroedinger equation. Then the oscillator is studied, using the perspective of creation and anhilatation operators, so useful in Quantum Field Theory. Finally, basics of the angular momentum in Quantum Mechanics is covered. The module has a view on simple calculable problems, the effect of measurement and the idea of a complete basis of states, ideas that repeat themselves in all the cases above mentioned.
This module introduces students to the fundamental concepts and phenomenology of the standard model of particle physics, focusing on the electroweak theory and Higgs boson physics.
