3. Course contents *

The course content is that of the textbook: Modern Particle Physics by Mark Thomson. We study the Dirac equation, elektromagnetic processes (QED), Feynman diagrams and elements of  the Strong Interactions (QCD), the Weak Interactions and the Standardmodel. Solving the numerous exercises in the book is an essential part of the course.
