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.

These are lectures which I gave at the 2012 CERN Summer School. They cover the basics of gauge symmetries and the phenomenon of spontaneous symmetry breaking which are used in the construction of the Standard Model of the Electro-Weak Interactions.

This is a handbook, or an extended glossary, written in encyclopedic format, covering subjects around particle detectors, the underlying physics, and the analysis of their data. It is both introduction for newcomers and reference for physicists.

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.
