Proseminar on the Physics of the Large Hadron Collider – FS 2013

The proseminar is supervised by Prof. Charalampos Anastasiou and covers a wide range of topics related to the physics of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

It will take place on Mondays at HIT J53 from 10:00 to 12:00. Dates of the different presentations can be found further below.

Each topic is assigned to a student who should prepare a presentation of around, but not more than, one hour duration.

Researchers of the institute (see list below) will help students in their preparation in a weekly meeting. They will provide literature and give a feedback on the student's progress. Students should keep them informed about their work in these meetings, starting (at least) 6 weeks before the date of the final presentation.

Requirements for passing the module

The topics labeled by (B) are more introductory and thus appropriate for bachelor students
