Structure functions are a measure of the partonic structure of hadrons, which is important for any process which involves colliding hadrons. This text gives an overview on present structure function and related data, and on the most recent techniques used to extract parton distribution functions to describe the structure of the proton.

Elementary-particle physics deals with the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. In this comprehensive article we shall attempt to sketch the outlines of the standard model and its possible extensions.

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.
