Goal of the course | The course is addressed to students who wish to obtain a deeper understanding of theoretical physics. Upon completion of the course the students should be able to apply group theory techniques in problems of theoretical physics and in particular high energy physics. Moreover, the students will know the intimate connection between symmetries and dynamics of physical systems. |

Syllabus | Introduction to group theory and algebra Representations of groups Lie groups, Lie algebras SU(2), Isospin Roots and weights SU(3), simple roots Tensor methods, Young Tableaux The Quark model SU(N) Color, Hadron mass, unified theories, the Lorentz group Spacetime symmetries and dynamics Internal symmetries and dynamics |
