Objectives and Content
The course gives a general introduction into subatomic physics and includes the structure of nuclei and particles, scattering theory and nuclear models, radioactivity, symmetries and conservation laws, the standard model (strong and electro-weak interactions), nuclear astrophysics and cosmology. The course is the basis for advanced courses in nuclear and particle physics.
After taking the course, students should be able to
- explain central concepts, laws and models in nuclear and particle physics
- interpret basic experiments
- use basic laws and relations to solve simple problems
