Fundamentals of the LHC – Johan Alwall

Date: Tue. April 14th, 2009, 12:30 pm-1:30 pm
Location: Rockefeller 221

In this introductory lecture I will present why we have built the LHC, and discuss the underlying physics of a hadron collider. This includes the fundamentals of QCD (the theory for the strong interaction), features such as jets and hadronization, and an introduction to the physics of the Standard Model, including Electroweak symmetry breaking. The lecture will be concluded with a discussion about the problems with the Standard Model.
