Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks (see English text below) Im Seminar soll das Verständnis für Astroteilchenphysikalische Experimente vertieft werden. Die Studierenden sollen eigenständig Vorträge vorbereiten und vortragen. Das Seminar soll die Astroteilchenphysik I Vorlesung begleiten Folgende Themen sollen behandelt werden: - CMB: Beobachtung der Hintergrundstrahlung und Interpretation der Messungen - Kosmische Distanzleiter: Methoden zur Entfernungsbestimmung - Dunkle Energie: SNIa Beobachtungen und deren Interpretation - Big Bang Nucleosynthesis: Messungen der Elementhäufigkeiten und Abgleich mit Erwartungen - Large Scale Strucutre in the universe: Der Einfluss der dunklen Materie - Large Scale Structure in the universe: Grenzen auf die Neutrinomasse - Messung von Neurtinomassen: Endpunktmessungen - Messung von Neutrinomassen: neutrinoloser Doppelbetazerfall - Experimente zum Neutrinolosen Doppelbetazerfall: GERDA, Kamland ZEN, EXO, CUORE - Neutrinooszillationen: SNO, Borexino, Kamland, Kamiokande - Evidenz für dunkle Materie: Dynamik in Galaxien, Clustern und Superclustern - Bestimmung der Massenverteilungen in Clustern: Weak lensing, der Bullet Cluster The aim of the seminar is to provide the students with a deaper insight into methods and experiments in astroparticle physics. The students are supposed to independently prepare and present the material. The seminar is meant as a supplemet to the astroparticle physics lecture. The following topics can be covered: - CMB: Observation of background radiation and its interpretation - The cosmic distance ladder: Methods to determine cosmological distances - Dark Energy: Observation of SNIa and its interpretation - Big Bang Nucleosynthesis: Measurement of element abundances and comparison to expectations - Large Scale Strucutre in the universe: the influence of dark matter - Large Scale Structure in the universe: limits on neutrino masses - Measurement of Neutrino masses: Endpoint measurements - Measurement of Neutrino masses: neutrinoless double beta decay - Experiments for the search of neutrinoless double beta decay: GERDA, Kamland ZEN, EXO, CUORE - Neutrino oscillations: SNO, Borexino, Kamland, Kamiokande - Evidence for dark matter: dynamics in galaxies, clusters and superclusters - Determination of mass distributions in clusters: weak lensing, the bullet cluster
