- The student has a good knowledge of electromagnetic interactions between particles and is able to calculate cross sections via leading order Feynman Diagrams.
- The student has a good knowledge of strong interactions (QCD) of the Standard Model (SM) and is able to calculate basic QCD Feynman Diagrams. He knows about the partonic structure of the proton.
