We make an overview of some recent topics of atomic physics that probe the Standard Model of particle physics as related to small tabletop experiments and accelerator-based experiments. A simple and intuitive overview of the theoretical background of the Standard Model related to these experiments are provided during the first 2/3 of the semester. We will cover the fundamental symmetries, weak interaction, electroweak theory, Higgs mechanism, CP violation. During the first few lectures, we will review the material regarding relativistic quantum mechanics covered in Modern hadron and atomic physics I in the previous semester. The lecture assumes some basic undergraduate-level knowledge of quantum mechanics.
The lectures will be provided online using Zoom. If you have questions, please e-mail: Masaki.Hori@mpq.mpg.de. If you would like to participate, please register and you will recieve the password to the Zoom session.

Einführungsvorlesung in die Astrophysik für Bachelor-Studierende. Die Vorlesung wird folgende Themenbereiche abdecken:

This course offers an introduction to tensor network-based numerical methods, including
- the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) for 1d quantum lattice models,
- the numerical renormalization group (NRG) for quantum impurity models,
- pair-wise entangled pair states (PEPS) for 2d quantum lattice models,
- the tensor renormalization group (TRG) for 2d classical lattice models,
- the exponential TRG (XTRG) for 1d models at finite temperature.
The minimal requirements for the course are classical field theory, in
particular gauge theory with Non-Abelian gauge groups. In the second
half of the semester, quantum effects in supersymmetric theories will be
discussed, so some knowledge of such effects in non-supersymmetric
quantum field theory will be very useful.
