PP5: Group Theory (for Particle Physics)

Module title: Group Theory (for Particle Physics) (PP5)

Module convenor: Dr. Orlando Villalobos Baillie (Birmingham)

Module aims: To provide an informal introduction to the use of group theory in particle physics, and its application to the Quark Model.

Learning objectives:
  • Review properties of groups and how they can be applied in particle physics
  • Get overview of relevant concepts in Lie groups and Lie algebra;
  • Get introduction to the application of these groups to the static Quark Model;
  • Study structure of SU(3) multiplets and their coupling.
