The Physics Department Summer Lecture series introduces the latest research in nuclear and particle physics being pursued at Brookhaven Lab at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduate STEM students and beginning graduate students. The series will include lectures on the Standard Model of particle physics, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), current and future nuclear and particle physics experiments and introductory cosmology. The lectures will cover both theoretical concepts as well as detector technologies and the latest experimental and computational techniques.
This year's lectures will proceed in thematic blocks as follows:
- Introduction to the Standard Model
- Searches for Physics beyond the Standard Model
- Quantum Chromodynamics and the Strong Force
- Introductory Cosmology
- Instrumentation for Nuclear and Particle Physics
- Select Experimental Results in Nuclear and Particle Physics
- Statistical and Computational Techniques in Nuclear and Particle Physics
Lectures for summer 2021 will be held virtually and recorded. To attend the lectures please use this zoom link.
We highly welcome feedback on the lectures both online and through the recordings offline. Please consider filling out our survey and leaving any comments or suggestions.
