The object is to introduce the ideas behind lattice gauge theory, with an intended audience of quantum field theorists with no lattice experience. The author concentrates on field theory aspects which are elucidated by lattice gauge theory.

This is an introductory review about the on-going search for a signal of Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in cosmic rays. The author first summarizes basic aspects of cosmic rays, focusing on rays of ultra high energy (UHECRs).

We present the screenplay of a physics show on particle physics, by the Physikshow of Bonn University. The show is addressed at non-physicists aged 14+ and communicates basic concepts of particle physics including the discovery of the Higgs boson.
