The topics discussed: 1) the experimental basis of the V-A structure of the weak interaction; 2) precision electroweak measurements at the Z resonance; 3) the Goldstone Boson Equivalence Theorem; 4) the Standard Model theory of the Higgs boson; etc.

Designed to acquaint students of particle physics with techniques applicable to all simple Lie algebras, this text is especially suited to the study of grand unification theories. Subjects include simple roots and the Cartan matrix, and more.

We begin with a recapitulation of General Relativity, and the Standard Model of Cosmology. This is followed by lectures on inflation, density perturbations, study of hot and cold relics decoupled from the remaining constituents, and baryon asymmetry.

The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.
