New Revolutions in Particle Physics: The Standard Model

By Stanford Continuing Studies Program

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


This course is a continuation of the Fall quarter on particle physics. The material will focus on the “Standard Model” of particle physics, especially quantum chromodynamics (the theory of quarks) and the electroweak theory based on the existence of the Higgs boson. We will also explore the inadequacies of the Standard Model and why theorists are led to go beyond it. This course was originally presented in Stanford's Continuing Studies program.

Customer Reviews

Good content, poor execution.

I'm still not all the way through, but there are already some issues will the lectures. If the professor answered questions half as often as he tried his best to dodge them in the most ambiguous fashion possible, the lectures would be twice as informative.
Also, the class asks questions way ahead of where the lecture is, but very obviously where it's going, and keep doing it over and over again, back to back, thereby halting the lecture for long periods.
