(2021/2022 academic year)
Graduate Public Speaking Course
The New Course format is that students will find a topic from a
"recent" paper which is not on their experiment.
Multiple requests for the same topic go to the first person to claim it on the basis of e-mail time-stamp!
Note: ATLAS students cannot use CMS results! (a similar principle will apply to other groups)
Lecture Notes and Slides;

Physics Papers and Public Notes
Searching for a particle
'X' that decays to two higgs bosons (HH). And then each higgs decays into two
X → HH → bbbb
The Oxford announcement with a link to the ATLAS public release. Paper to come soon!
Using top quarks in jets to measure the
efficiency and performance of ATLAS b-taggers -
Boosted decision Tree and a deep-learning network are studied (submitted to Journal): arXiv: 1907.05120 (Eur. Phys. J. C 79 (2019) 970)
A Neural Net’s eye view of the “Oxford Jump” – Tagging b quarks without tracks using an Artificial Neural Network algorithm.

Further Lecture Slides (very old):
ElectroMagnetic Fields and Waves Lecture Materials
(Year 2 E&M Part A) ← follow the link. (NOTE: After only one year of glory they kicked me out. But I'm going to leave this link up for those doing 2nd year EM just in case you want additional problem sets and some summary slides. You might find my notes on transmission lines useful if you can read my handwriting.)
4th Year Mphys Project Information (update 23/05/18 by B.T. H )
with MUCH information for the MPHYS Projects. Here is the
tarball you need to get started as well. <MphysProjUser.tar>
Software Overview of the framework used.
Part 1 on working with the CDF data set using interactive ROOT sessions.
First Steps with the analysis.
with the analysis.
The Definitive reference for B mesons at CDF by Manfred Paulini (7.5 MB postscript file)
Tutorial on Using Physics Vector Objects (CLHEP tools) by Tracey Berry (Pratt)
This Material is not current - 23/05/2018
Part 2 on MphysEvent - what an "event" is in the CDF data set.
MphysTrack - contains the list of most useful things in a "track".
MphysMuon - contains the list of most useful things in a "muon", it inherits from "track".
MphysElectron - contains the list of most useful things in an "electron", it inherits from "track".
NP10 - "The Search for the B Meson" -
Undergraduate Nuclear Physics Lab Script
Introduction to the search for B mesons
Oxford Physics Course:
Everything important about the course is in:
Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics (2nd year and Theory Option in particular)
4th Year Particle Physics Option
, htm format the fonts do not work in all browsers for this one, sorry)
Lecture N: The Discovery of the Top Quark Lecture Notes (MS-word 97)
Lecture N+2: Beyond the Standard Model (PowerPoint, htm format)
The Quark Model of bound Hadronic States and Vicarious Excursions into Group Theory
(I no longer do these lectures, but those of you taking the course are welcome to look at these slides nonetheless.)
Lecture 1 (PowerPoint) (PDF)
Lecture 2 (PowerPoint) (PDF)
These lectures do not have the complete sets of slides and notes that I show.
The full first two lectures are contained within this *.pdf file. (17MB)
Lecture 3 (htm PDF)
Lecture Notes (htm format
Old lectures But they still have some good information,
...so I'll keep them around for a while.
Lecture 4 (PowerPoint: Part A Part B)
Lecture 5 (PowerPoint)
Lecture 6 (PowerPoint) ....but because they are old they aren't in *.pdf format.
Public Service Announcement - Ask Questions about VISA forms! (pre-09/11/2001, these days questions are not a good idea. Also, this is very old and I'm not sure they still ask the same questions.)
