If you have a question about this talk, please contact Alexander Shannon.

This talk will begin with a brief introduction about the link between quantum field theory and the standard model of particle physics. I will go on to talk about some of the key ideas in the standard model including particle representations, gauge fields and the Higgs effect, and then illustrate all these using the electroweak interaction as a single example. At the end, I shall make some closing remarks about why, despite its massive success, this isn’t the end of theoretical physics and talk about what more there is to do.

Despite the title of the talk, no quantum field theory knowledge will be required.
