Cracks and Blind Spots in the Standard Model

9th Odense Winter School on Theoretical Physics

This year the school will focus on problems and inconsistencies in the standard model and how, by addressing these questions, we can help going beyond our current knowledge in particle physics and open the doors to future discoveries.

The lectures will span a broad range of topics covering Higgs and flavor physics, leptogenesis and dark matter. In this way much ground will be covered which we hope will benefit the student on his/her route to becoming an independent researcher. All lectures are given by experts in their fields.
