Theory of elementary particles
 Number of credits: 5
 Type of control: [RK1+MT1+RK2+Exam] (100)
 Description: The purpose of studying of discipline: the goal of the theory of elementary particles is to understand the fundamental constituents of matter and their mutual interactions.

The ability to apply critical reasoning skills to model and solve related problems in theory of elementary particles. 3.The proficiency in the collection, analysis and interpretation of elementary particles interactions in High Energy Physics data. Abstract оf discipline: The two basic constituents of matter are quarks and leptons. Both of these subatomic particles are fermions, so all bosons are created from an even combination of these particles. Quarks are fundamental particles which interact through all four of the fundamental forces of physics: gravity, electromagnetism, weak interaction, and strong interaction. Quarks always exist in combination to form subatomic particles known as hadrons. Hadrons, just to make things even more complicated, are divided into mesons (which are bosons) and baryons (which are fermions). Protons & neutrons are baryons. In other words, they are composed of quarks such that their spin is a halfinteger value. Leptons, on the other hand, are fundamental particles that do not experience strong interaction. There are three "flavors" of leptons: the electrons, the muons, and the tau particles. Each flavor is composed of a "weak doublet," which is made up of the aforementioned particle along with a virtually massless neutral particle called a neutrino. Thus, the electron lepton is the weak doublet of electron & electronneutrino.
