   Flavor Physics: Course 1







Introduction to flavor physics in and beyond the Standard Model
Enrico Lunghi (Fermilab)
Jan. 23, 25, 30, 31

These lectures provide an introduction to the phenomenology of flavor changing interactions and CP violation. The first step is a review of the Standard Model, with particular emphasis on how the CKM matrix emerges from the electro-weak symmetry braking. Then we present the effective Hamiltonian approach to rare decays and a classification of CP violating effects. We, then, discuss the measurement of various CP violating observables. Finally, we discuss some new physics scenarios.
