Official Description

This advanced graduate course will focus on our understanding of the processes by which very energetic hadron-hadron scattering, characterized by high transverse-momentum (PT) processes, occur.  It will delve into various aspects of these scattering events that have to be taken into consideration when analyzing and interpreting them, both to make robust measurements and discover new phenomena.  The course will focus on the 13 TeV proton-proton collisions produced by the Large Hadron Collider, but will use some examples from prior hadron collider experiments.  The anatomy of a hard-scattering event will be dissected, and we'll discuss each aspect through the interplay of theoretical frameworks and the experimental challenges.

This course is intended for graduate students in particle physics experiment, theory or phenomenology, who already have or are simultaneously developing a background in relativistic quantum field theory and the Standard Model of particle physics.

Prerequisite: PHY2403F Quantum Field Theory I
Recommended preparation: PHY2408F Phenomenology of the Standard Model
