Informal Lectures on Lattice Gauge Theory
by Guy D. Moore
Publisher: McGill University 2003
Number of pages: 50
The object is to introduce the ideas behind lattice gauge theory, with an intended audience of quantum field theorists with no lattice experience. I concentrate on field theory aspects which are elucidated by lattice gauge theory; ideas of effective field theory, the geometrical meaning of gauge invariance, attempts to rigorously define confinement, instantons and topology, and a concrete example of what complications arise when one tries to regulate chiral theories.

Seesaw-type and low-scale models of neutrino masses are reviewed, along with the corresponding structure of the lepton mixing matrix. The status of neutrino oscillation parameters as of June 2006 is given, including recent fluxes.

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 Standard Model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak, and strong nuclear interactions, which mediate the dynamics of subatomic particles. It was developed as a collaborative effort of scientists around the world.

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.
