**Introduction to Collider Physics**

by Maxim Perelstein

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 47

**Description**:

These lecture notes introduce students to some of the basic ideas and tools required for theoretical analysis of collider data. Several examples of Standard Model processes at electron-positron and hadron colliders are considered to illustrate these ideas. In addition, a general strategy for formulating searches for physics beyond the Standard Model is outlined.
