LHC Physics

These lectures provides an introduction to physics at LHC, in particular to the theoretical tools needed to predict cross sections at hadron colliders.

  1. From Feynman diagrams to cross sections (Slides of Madgraph demonstration)
  2. The LHC and its detectors (by Michele Weber)
  3. QCD and the parton model (Figures)
  4. Higher-order corrections and infrared safety
  5. Jet physics
    1. Jet algorithms (Figures)
    2. Jet reconstruction (by Michele Weber) and jet substructure
  6. Parton distribution functions
  7. Higgs physics at the LHC (Figures)
  8. Advanced methods for multi-jet processes (Figures)
