Course Outline
This course introduces basic collider physics starting with the basic reactions in older e+e- colliders. It will then discuss electroweak symmetry breaking at collider experiments. Next it introduces various scenarios of new physics at the TeV energy scale, and discusses their consequences at future colliders. Finally it will cover the connection between the collider physics and cosmology.
