Introduction to the Standard Model of the Electro-Weak Interactions
by Jean Iliopoulos
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 44
These are the notes of a set of four lectures which I gave at the 2012 CERN Summer School of Particle Physics. They cover the basic ideas 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.

Theoretical hypotheses on the nature of the dark matter particles are numerous, so we concentrate on several candidates, such as WIMPs, axions and sterile neutrinos, and also give examples of more elusive candidates such as fuzzy dark matter.

We start by giving a panorama of neutrino experiments. We briefly discuss the history of neutrinos, their experimental discovery, the quest for neutrino flavor oscillations and the experiments that finally established them ...

My aim is to explain the essentials of lattice calculations, give an update on the present status of calculations of phenomenologically interesting quantities, and to provide an understanding of the various sources of uncertainty in the results.
