  • Here is additional material on Higgs physics:

  • Higgs search at the LHC and beyond

  • Here is additional material on SUSY:

  • SUSY motivations and LHC searches


  • You will find the reference list for this course at the end of the lecture nodes. However, here are a few more suggestions.

    A good reference for learning about SM tests (particularly at colliders) from an experimental perspective is: A. Bettini, ``Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics'', Cambridge University Press, 2014.

    For the part about Supersymmetry I recommend my own book: S. Khalil and S. Moretti, ``Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: From Theory to Experiment'', CRC Press, 2017.

    Some of the problem sheets and the examples given in the lectures could be tackled numerically, in this case I recommend programming in C++; a good book to look up to get acquainted with the language for scientific computing purposes is: W.-H. Steeb, Y. Hardy, A. Hardy and R. Stoop, ``Problems & Solutions in Scientific Computing'', World Scientific, 2004.



    Here are the problem sheets associated with this module:

  • Problem Sheet 1
  • Problem Sheet 2
  • Problem Sheet 3
  • Problem Sheet 4
  • Problem Sheet 5
  • Solutions are available upon request.
