Unformatted text preview: & PHYS 646: High Energy Particle Physics Collider Physics Beyond the Standard Model Konstantin Matchev University of Florida Cornell University Cornell University, January 27, 2004 & Course Outline The course will provide an introduction to modern collider physics phenomenology at a level accessible to both theory and experimental graduate students. It assumes only limited knowledge of basic elementary particle physics at the level of PHYS 444. The main objective of the course is to prepare the students for interpreting the wealth of new data to come out of the Tevatron, LHC and NLC, emphasizing both the experimental realities at a high-energy collider as well as the methods for the discovery of new physics. The course will introduce the leading candidate theories for new physics beyond the Standard Model (supersymmetry, extra dimensions, (little) Higgs theories, strong dynamics, etc.), review the main motivation behind each one, identify their salient features and discuss the methods for their discovery and identification at colliders. The course will also provide some unique hands-oncolliders....
