What's (the) Matter?, A Show on Elementary Particle Physics
by Herbi K. Dreiner, et al.
Publisher: arXiv 2016
Number of pages: 113
We present the screenplay of a physics show on particle physics, by the Physikshow of Bonn University. The show is addressed at non-physicists aged 14+ and communicates basic concepts of elementary particle physics including the discovery of the Higgs boson in an entertaining fashion.

My aim is to explain the essentials of lattice calculations, give an update on the present status of calculations of phenomenologically interesting quantities, and to provide an understanding of the various sources of uncertainty in the results.

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.

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.

Modern cosmology has created a tight link between particle physics / field theory and a wealth of new observational data on the structure of the Universe. These notes focus on some aspects concerning the connection between theory and observations.
