Course review:
1. Particle content of the Standard Model. 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. 2. Standard model as a theory of electroweak and strong interactions (basics). 3. Interaction of particles with medium (basics): 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). 4. Detectors (basics):Particle detection methods, selected types of detectors: scintillators, Čerenkov detectors, track detectors, calorimeters. 5. Particle accelerators (basics): Principles of accelerating, utilized devices, linear and circular accelerators, fixed target and counter propagating beams. 6. Most important experiments on the accelerators including Czech participation: Experiments on LEP, Tevatron and LHC, the most important results.
