The course is an extension of the basic course on Elementary Particle
Physics . The goal is to give wider and deeper description of basic interactions
of elementary particles and methods for their experimental investigation.
Simultaneously , headmost theoretical and experimental results obtained
in the last few years are presented.
The different types of symmetry of the fundamental interactions are considered. The description of the interactions using local (gauge) groups of symmetry is presented. The basic concepts of Quantum Chromodynamics the theory of strong interactions of quarks together with the most important predictions and unsolved problems are considered . The models describing hadron interactions at low energies are discussed.
A vast material is devoted to the unified description of electromagnetic and weak interactions .The properties of intermediate and Higgs boson are considered in details. A special attention is paid to the precise test of the Standard Model of strong and electroweak interactions . The experimental results obtained during the last years are shown.
The models giving an unified description of strong and electroweak interactions are discussed. The basic ideas of Supersymmetry and the supersymmetric extensions of The Standard Model are presented . The ongoing experiments testing their predictions are considered in details . The main directions of development of Elementary Particle Physics are pointed out.
