Examiner:

Professor  Mikhail Zhukov



Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Quantum physics, subatomic physics, electromagnetism and special relativity.

Aim

Ever since 1896 when Becquerel discovered radioactivity subatomic physics has been at the front-line of natural sciences. The aim of the course is to develop a deep and profound knowledge of quantum mechanical systems common to modern nuclear and particle physics. Further the student will acquire specific competences related to the theoretical and experimental tools used to day.

Goal

The goal is to develop the scientific methodology of the student so that she/he acquires the theoretical and experimental tools and knowledge of quantum methods required to investigate and interpret strong and electroweak interactions.

Content

Interaction between radiation and matter, additive conservation laws and symmetries, parity operation, charge conjugation, time reversal, electromagnetic interaction, weak interaction and applications to nuclear astrophysics, gauge theories, strong interaction, quarks, mesons and baryons.

Organisation

Teaching is mediated in lectures.
If conceivable a visit to an international accelerator based laboratory might be arranged.
