## 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.
