Summer School on Particle Physics, Cosmology and Strings
- Start Date: 08/06/2007
- End Date: 08/19/2007
University of British Columbia
The Summer School on Particle Physics, Cosmology and Strings is the 5th in an ongoing series offered by Perimeter Institute and PIMS. The summer school is targeted at 40 advanced graduate students in high energy physics with interests in at least one of the research areas of particle physics, cosmology and/or string theory.
The 1st, 2nd and 4th editions of this summer school were held at the University of British Columbia. The 3rd edition was held at Perimeter Institute.
Broadly, the lecture courses at the school will revolve around the following themes: In particle physics, the content is aimed at helping students gain the basic tools to journey through the LHC era; in cosmology, the content is aimed at giving students the necessary background to follow the developments coming from WMAP; in string theory, the content is aimed at the developments directly connected to particle physics and cosmology.
