Experimental Elementary Particles Physics

Sapienza Università di Roma

A.A. 2015/2016 - Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Fisica

Prof. Cesare Bini

Lecture time Week day Room
9-11 tuesday Aula 2 (Edificio Fermi)
9-11 thursday Aula 2 (Edificio Fermi)

Aim of the lectures

The aim of the course is to present how the experiments in elementary particle physics are designed and how the data taken in these experiments are analyzed in order to get the physics results. A selection of old and recent experiments are considered and discussed. At the end, the students should be able to understand and discuss research papers describing measurements done in elementary particle physics experiments.

Beginning of the course: September 29th Aula 2 - 9.00

Slides of the lectures

1. Hystorical introduction
