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:

  1. Introduction to the Standard Model
  2. Physics of the Weak Force
  3. Quantum Chromodynamics and the Strong Force
  4. Introductory Cosmology
  5. Principals of Nuclear and Particle Physics Detectors
  6. Recent Experimental Results in Nuclear and Particle Physics
  7. Statistical and Computational Techniques in Nuclear and Particle Physics
