Leerdoelen  The student has a factual knowledgebase about nuclear, hadron and elementary particle physics. The student can explain central concepts in subatomic physics, such as symmetries and conservation laws, scattering cross section and form factor, the relation between mass excess and instability, and quantum oscillations. The student can apply concepts and models, such as the CKM mechanism, quark model or liquid drop model, for calculations and to solve practical problems related to subatomic physics. 

Omschrijving  The objective of the course is to give the student a broad introduction into the physics of systems smaller than the atom. Topics that will be covered are the atomic nucleus, hadrons and the elementaire fermions, the interactions between them and the resulting phenomenology. Concepts are introduced following their historical development and placed in their modern context. The lectures cover Chapters 13 and 56 of the book, and Chapter 9 permitting time. Remaining Chapters are recommended as background material and not tested.
