Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 66
Computer tools such as SARAH, MicrOmegas, MadGraph, SPheno or FlavorKit have become quite popular, and many physicists use them on a daily basis. In this course we will learn how to use these computer tools to explore new physics models and get robust numerical predictions to probe them in current and future experiments.

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 particle physics including the discovery of the Higgs boson.

These lectures describe some aspects of the physics of massive neutrinos. After a brief introduction of neutrinos in the Standard Model, the author discusses possible patterns for their masses. A discussion of Dirac and Majorana masses is included.

The general question, crucial to the internal structure of nucleon, of how to split the total angular momentum of a photon or gluon into spin and orbital contributions is one of the most important and interesting challenges faced by gauge theories.
