  1. Class time and location
  2. Class specifications
  3. Class plans
  4. Semester projects

2
Class Time and Location
  • Current 1100 1220pm, Mon Wed, SH 129
  • Proposal 100 220pm, Mon Wed, SH 200

3
Class Specification
  • Text Books
  • D. Griffiths, Introduction to Elementary
    Particle Physics
  • D. Perkins, Introduction to High Energy Physics
  • Reading Assignments
  • Not just based on the books
  • Will have to rely on papers
  • Extra credit on presentations up to 5
  • Homework Assignments
  • There will be homework problems randomly assigned
    throughout the semester
  • Two Written Term Exams (2025)
  • Semester DØ Data Analysis Projects and
    Presentations (45)
  • Will be mixed theory experimental techniques

4
Syllabus
  • Neutrinos
  • Formalism
  • Neutrinos and proton structure functions
  • sin2qW measurements and its impact to Higgs
  • Neutrino Oscillation
  • Electroweak Symmetry Breaking
  • Standard Model EWSB formalism Higgs
  • Minimal Super-symmstric Extension of Standard
    Model
  • Other EWSB Theories (SUSY) Other Types of Higgs
  • Strategy for Higgs search
  • New Phenomena
  • SUSY Formalism and available models
  • Large Extra-dimension
  • Search strategy
  • Will be mixed with appropriate experimental
    techniques
  • Detectors and Particle IDs, etc

5
Semester Projects
  • DØ Data Analysis
  • Need to setup DØ Data Analysis systems
  • See http//www-d0.fnal.gov/computing/algorithms/ho
    wto/tutorial.htmlfor tutorial
  • Consists of
  • A gt10 page report (must become a UTA-HEP note)
  • A 30 minute presentation
  • Topics
  • Number of events vs Number of jets for W and Z
    events

6
W/Z Jets Events
  • Most the signal events you are interested in
    involve
  • high PT leptons (e, m and t)
  • Neutrinos ? Missing ET
  • Jets ? especially jets from heavy quarks
  • Requires
  • Knowing the trigger lists
  • Understanding the triggers
  • Understanding particle ID
  • Producing kinematic variable distributions
  • Electron and Muon ET spectra
  • Missing ET spectra
  • Construction of Masses (Transverse and Invariant
    masses of W and Z you collect)
  • Subtraction of backgrounds
  • Error estimate (stat. and syst.)
