The aims of this school were to provide an introduction to the different theoretical approaches and assess their relative strengths and successes, and to summarize the existing important open problems and tests of the SM for which there will be experimental input during the next decade. The resulting book is a pedagogical survey of the field which will be a valuable guide for a new generation of students.
The school was divided into roughly two equal parts - the core lectures and the advanced courses. The core lectures provide an introduction to field theory, the Standard Model, and the methods used to study them. The advanced courses build upon these introductory courses and pave the way for students to reach the frontiers and possibly start research in some of the current exciting topics. To this end a balance was sought and achieved between theory and experiment.
About: The Standard Model (SM) of particle interactions, since its formulation in the early seventies, remains the only serious candidate theory describing three of the four forces of nature - weak, electromagnetic and strong.
