The Electroweak Theory and Higgs Physics · Six
Lectures
Chris
Quigg (Fermilab) November 1 – 17, 2005
After a short essay on the current state of particle physics, I will
review
the antecedents of the modern picture of the weak and electromagnetic
interactions and then undertake a brief survey of the
SU(2)_{L}⊗ U(1)_{Y} electroweak theory. I will
explore the features
of electroweak phenomenology at tree level and beyond, present an
introduction to the Higgs boson and the physics of the 1TeV scale, and
examine arguments
for enlarging the electroweak theory. These lectures will be based on my TASI 2000 course on Electroweak
Theory. We will touch on topics of current interest at the Tevatron
and look ahead to experiments at the LHC.
