Stanford Particle Physics: Basic Concepts

Revolutionary new concepts about elementary particles, space and time, and the structure of matter began to emerge in the mid-1970s. Theory got far ahead of experiment with radical new ideas such as grand unification and supersymmetry, but the concepts have never been experimentally tested. Now all that is about to change. The Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, has finally been built and is about to confront theory with experiment. This course is devoted to these theoretical ideas and how they will be tested. Created by Stanford.
