Theoretical Advanced Study Institute in Elementary Particle Physics (TASI)
June 3-28, 2013
“Particle Physics: The Higgs Boson and Beyond”
Lecturers and Topics:
Heather Logan (Carleton) - Higgs Bosons Within and Beyond the Standard Model
Bogdan Dobrescu (Fermilab)
Iain Stewart (MIT)
The program will consist of a pedagogical series of lectures and seminars. Lectures will be given over a four-week period, three or four lectures per day, Monday through Friday. The audience will be composed primarily of advanced theoretical graduate students. Experimentalists with a strong background in theory are also encouraged to apply. Some post-doctoral fellows will be admitted, but preference will be given to applicants who will not have received their Ph.D. before 2013. The minimum background needed to get full benefit of TASI is a knowledge of quantum field theory (including RGEs) and familiarity with the Standard Model. Some familiarity with SUSY and string theory would be helpful. We hope to provide some subsidy, but students will need partial support from other sources. Rooms, meals, and access to all facilities will be provided at reasonable rates in beautifully located dormitories at the University of Colorado.
