Proceedings of the 2009 CERN-Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics
by C. Grojean, M. Spiropulu
Publisher: CERN 2010
Number of pages: 572
The CERN-Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics is intended to give young physicists an introduction to the theoretical aspects of recent advances in elementary particle physics. These proceedings contain lectures on quantum field theory, quantum chromodynamics, physics beyond the Standard Model, neutrino physics, flavour physics and CP violation, particle cosmology, high-energy astro-particle physics, and heavy-ion physics, as well as trigger and data acquisition, and commissioning and early physics analysis of the ATLAS and CMS experiments.

We present a review of theories of states of quantum matter without quasiparticle excitations. Solvable examples of such states are provided through a holographic duality with gravitational theories in an emergent spatial dimension.

This is an introductory review about the on-going search for a signal of Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in cosmic rays. The author first summarizes basic aspects of cosmic rays, focusing on rays of ultra high energy (UHECRs).

Designed to acquaint students of particle physics with techniques applicable to all simple Lie algebras, this text is especially suited to the study of grand unification theories. Subjects include simple roots and the Cartan matrix, and more.

A unique conception applies with equal success to phenomena from the micro Kelvin range up to the temperatures of the 'big bang' of the universe. It is just this feature which proves the power of the physical approach to the exploration of nature.
