The Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics announces the third mini-course by Stanford physics faculty on recent fundamental advances in theoretical physics. The fall quarter's lectures will be by Professor Savas Dimopoulos.
The discovery of the Higgs particle at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012 completes the Standard Model of particle physics, which successfully accounts for almost all phenomena observed in the universe. Professor Dimopoulos will overview this model and some of the deep questions that suggest going beyond it to theories with extra dimensions, supersymmetry, string theory and the multiverse.
