Title  05 Standard Model Effective Field Theory and its applications in Flavour Physics 
Prof.  Martin Jung, martin.jung@unito.it 
CFU  5 
Period  June 2019 
Prerequisites 

Programme 
The fact that no states beyond
the Standard Model (SM) ones have been found so far indicates a
sizable energy gap between the electroweak scale and that of potential
New Physics. In such a situation, it is possible to formulate an
effective theory (EFT) in terms of the SM degrees of freedom, respecting the SM symmetries. The resulting EFT provides a modelindependent framework in which all theories beyond the SM fulfilling its assumptions can be analyzed in. This course aims to give an introduction to SMEFT, explicitly treating its formulation, advantages and limitations. In the second part applications are discussed, focussing on the question what information can be extracted from observations at energies much lower than the electroweak scale.

Title  16 Case Studies in the History of Physics 
Prof.  Matteo Leone 
CFU  2 
Period  8 hrs, AprilJuly 2019 
Prerequisites 

Programme  The course covers one of the main topics in
the historiography of physics: the importance of going back to the
primary sources (archival documents, original papers, correspondence,
instruments and so on). The topic will be assessed through the analysis
of selected historical casestudies: Macedonio Melloni and the birth of infrared physics (18301850)  “Rutherford’s experiment” on alpha particle scattering (19061913)  The collections of scientific instruments of historical interest: the Museum of Physics of the University of Turin and the SMA (University of Turin Museum System)
