matter at a fundamental level? What is antimatter? How are matter and
antimatter created and destroyed? What are the fundamental forces and how are
they transmitted? These questions and others are addressed by Physics 535. This
course surveys elementary particle phenomena encompassed by the standard model
of interacting quarks, leptons, and gauge bosons. The course builds upon
elementary quantum mechanics and special relativity theory knowledge.
Introduction to particles, antiparticles and fundamental interactions;
detectors and accelerators; symmetries and conservation laws; electroweak and
color interactions of quarks and leptons; unification theories, are presented.
