Postgraduate Lectures

Graduate students participate in a series of intercollegiate lectures within the University of London system (jointly with Brunel, Royal Holloway and UCL). The lectures are described in detail on the intercollegiate lecture web page and cover the following subjects:

  • The Standard Model and beyond
  • Symmetry and conservation laws
  • Statistical analysis of data
  • Analysis methods in particle physics
  • UNIX and Root
  • Detectors
  • Trigger and data acquisition
  • CP violation and B Physics
  • Neutrino physics
  • Hadron collider physics
  • LHC physics
  • QCD phenomenology and parton densities
  • Linear collider physics & Particle Accelerators

This material is taught over the first semester, with one or two days overflowing into January of the following year. There will be a set of open book exams held during the month of January to asses a student's comprehension of the course.
