Prof. Wolfgang Lohmann: "Particle Physics"



The Standard Model of Particle Physics will be introduced. In particular key results of experiments, essential for the development of the theory, will be discussed. The accelerator and detector technologies having made these results possible will be treated in detail, supplemented by novel technologies important for forthcoming experiments.
