Course review:
1. "Bricks and mortar, our world is built from": - Fundamental discoveries (electron, nucleus, neutron, positron, muon,). - Classification of particles- qu.numbers, spin isospin, parity - Contemporary state of our knowledge - basic properties of matter and their interactions. - Partons, deeply non-elastic scattering. - Standard model - what is it for - So far un-answered questions. 2. Interaction of partices with medium: - Passage of charged particles through the medium in dependence of their energy. - Losses due to ionisation, radiation, Čerenkov radiation, transient radiation, multiple scattering. - Electromagnetic and hadron cascades (showers). 3. Detectors (basics): - Particle detection methods, selected types of detectors: scintillators, Čerenkov detectors, track detectors, calorimeters. 4. Particle accelerators (basics): - Principles of accelerating, utilized devices, linear and circular accelerators, fixed target and counter propagating beams. 5. Most important experiments on the accelerators including Czech participation: - Experiments on LEP, Tevatron and LHC, the most important results.
