**Thomas Mannel (University of Siegen): Probing the Standard Model with Flavour Physics**Lecture 1 Lecture 2 Lecture 3
Abstract: Flavour Physics has become an important tool to test the Standard Model and to perform sensitive
probes of physics beyond this model. The lectures are designed to introduce into the subject and to discuss
some of the recent "hot topics" in this field.- Introduction to Flavour Physics
- Effective Theory tools
- "Hot Topics": Are there hints to physics beyond the Standard model?

The tentative schedule is:
