Teaching Methods. Lectures, assignment of related papers to read and comment in class discussions, guidance in writing a paper on a chosen subject at the end of the course.
Verification of Learning. Final report (of about 10-12 pages, in english) on a subject chosen after a discussion with the professor. The report has to be presented in about 20-25 minutes using slides. During the presentation, questions are asked related to the report but also to topics presented during the course. The final evaluation is based on the quality of the written report, on the level of its presentation and on the answers to the questions posed.
More Information. During the lessons , papers and conferences related to the topics discussed and which may be useful for further studies are indicated. Teaching can be held in English, upon proposal of the competent teaching structure. The material presented during the course (slides etc) is available at the link: https://thecobal.wordpress.com/
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING The course aims to provide the fundamental knowledge and understanding of the Standard Model of Elementary Particles – the theory which describes the fundamental building blocks of matter and their interactions – and of the principles of particle detection. A further objective is to provide a basic knowledge of modern techniques of data detection and analysis and of the current phenomenological framework in the different sectors of Elementary Particle Physics. APPLIED KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING Solving exercises, working in the computer lab that is part of the course (and which proposes the reconstruction – using real data collected at the LHC accelerator – of the Higgs boson through its decay products), the possible discussion of current and interesting scientific results related to the topics covered in the course, are the elements that allow the student to apply the concepts acquired in the course, for the discussion and resolution of problems. The student will then have – at the end of lessons – the ability to identify the essential elements of a certain phenomenon, to describe it in terms of orders of magnitude and level of approximation necessary, to apply laws and principles studied. MAKING JUDGEMENTS The student has to demonstrate that he/her has not only acquired concepts and knowledge, but also that he/her has developed his/her own judgment skills. This is obtained also through the choice of the topic for the final report. COMMUNICATION SKILLS The required presentation of the report aims to test and verify the student’s ability to summarize the written report as required (time limit and use of slides), using the concepts and knowledge learned during the course in an effective and appropriate manner. and with a correct scientific language. LEARNING ABILITY With the final exam, the student must be able to apply the knowledge, skills and competences foreseen in this syllabus. He will be able to study independently the topics covered in the course, also through the consultation of specific bibliographic texts.
