**Collider Physics within the Standard Model: a Primer**

by Guido Altarelli

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 163

**Description**:

These are graduate lecture notes on Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and the theory of Electroweak (EW) Interactions, with main focus on Collider Physics. I hope that these lectures can provide an introduction to the subject for the interested reader, assumed to be already familiar with quantum field theory and some basic facts in elementary particle physics as taught in undergraduate courses.

A unique conception applies with equal success to phenomena from the micro Kelvin range up to the temperatures of the 'big bang' of the universe. It is just this feature which proves the power of the physical approach to the exploration of nature.
