Class Info

Presents a modern view of the fundamental structure of matter. Starting from the Standard Model, which views leptons and quarks as basic building blocks of matter, establishes the properties and interactions of these particles. Explores applications of this phenomenology to both particle and nuclear physics. Emphasizes current topics in nuclear and particle physics research at MIT. Intended for students with a basic knowledge of relativity and quantum physics concepts.

This class has 8.033, and 8.04 as prerequisites.

8.276 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. Williams.
