Book cover: Theory of Electromagnetic FieldsTheory of Electromagnetic Fields
by - arXiv ,
We discuss electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We review Maxwell's equations and show that there are solutions representing the propagation of electromagnetic waves.

Book cover: Physics Searches at the LHCPhysics Searches at the LHC
by - arXiv ,
With the LHC up, the focus of high energy physics will soon turn to an interpretation of LHC data in terms of the physics of electroweak symmetry breaking and the TeV scale. We present here models for new TeV-scale physics and their LHC signatures.

Book cover: Searching for the Higgs BosonSearching for the Higgs Boson
by - arXiv ,
These are lectures on Higgs boson collider searches. The author first reviews the Standard Model searches, then covers in-depth what comes after a candidate discovery at LHC, and finally discusses the MSSM extension to the Higgs sector.

Book cover: Introduction to Collider PhysicsIntroduction to Collider Physics
by - arXiv ,
This is an introduction to some of the basic ideas and tools required for theoretical analysis of collider data. Several examples of Standard Model processes at electron-positron and hadron colliders are considered to illustrate these ideas.
