Lectures on the Theory of the Weak Interaction
by Michael E. Peskin
Publisher: arXiv.org 2017
Number of pages: 96
The topics discussed are: (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; (5) the future program of precision study 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 following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.

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.
