Introduction to Particle Physics
This course will explain the basic concepts in particle physics, starting from the basic blocks of matter as we know them before looking at the fundamental forces and experimental methods used in ongoing investigations in the field. You will learn about the elementary particles and fundamental forces acting between them and understand the behaviour of all known matter, from very small-scale particles to the very large scale of the universe and its composition. We will also explain main experimental techniques, from particle accelerators to particle detectors and statistical data analyses. We hope that by the end of the programme you will be able to confidently reassure others that the LHC will not destroy the world!
