8.325 Relativistic Quantum Field Theory III
The third and last term of the quantum field theory sequence. Its aim is the proper theoretical discussion of the physics of the standard model. Topics: quantum chromodynamics; Higgs phenomenon and a description of the standard model; deep-inelastic scattering and structure functions; basics of lattice gauge theory; operator products and effective theories; detailed structure of the standard model; spontaneously broken gauge theory and its quantization; instantons and theta-vacua; topological defects; introduction to supersymmetry.
This class has 8.324 as a prerequisite.
8.325 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by W. Taylor.
Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-310.
