Schools / Stanford University / PHY 25: New Revolutions in Particle Physics: The Basic Concepts ( Add One )

This Stanford course explores the new revolutions and latest discoveries in the field of particle physics. Course given by Leonard Susskind, filmed Fall 2009.
Lecture 1: Introduction To Particle Physics
Posted in Stanford University
Leonard Susskind gives the introductory lecture of a course that will explore the newest revolutions in particle physics. This class explores the properties of light, particles and the quantum field theory.
Lecture 2: Quantum Field Theory
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture Susskind discusses the quantum field theory (QFT), a theoretical framework for constructing quantum mechanical models of systems classically parametrized (represented) by an infinite number of fields.
Lecture 3: What Is A Quantum Field?
Posted in Stanford University
This lecture discusses the properties and structures of quantum fields and describes their relation to particles.
Lecture 4: Quantum Fields & Particle Processes
Posted in Stanford University
This Stanford University lecture shows how quantum fields can be used to begin to describe various particle processes.
Lecture 5: Fermions & Energy Conservation
Posted in Stanford University
This lecture continues the discussion of the quantum field theory, focusing on fermions, waves and energy conservation.
Lecture 6: Diary Equation & Higgs Particles
Posted in Stanford University
Leonard Susskind continues elaborating the subject of quantum field theory, including, the diary equation and the hypothetical Higgs Bosons - the particle responsible for mass.
Lecture 7: Angular Momentum
Posted in Stanford University
Wrapping up the coverage of the quantum field theory, Professor Leonard Susskind discusses the theory behind angular momentum and the relevant mathematics.
Lecture 8: Dirac Equation & Particle Spin
Posted in Stanford University
This lecture breaks down the theory and mathematics behind particle & isotopic spin (and half spin) in addition to the Dirac equation.
Lecture 9: Equations of Quantum Field Theory
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture Leonard Susskind tackles the motion of fields containing particles and quantum field theory. He also shows how basic processes are coded by a Lagrangian.
Lecture 10: Path Integral Formulation
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture, Professor Susskind retouches on particle actions through the lagrangian, quantum field theory and path integral formulation.
