Synopsis:

Abstract:

Overview of nuclear and subnuclear physics from the beginning of the 20th century until today. The lecture describes basic properties of atomic nuclei, nuclear decays and nuclear reactions. Then it concentrates on elementary particle physics. It reviews basic properties of elementary particles and fundamental interactions leading to the formulation of the so-called Standard Model of elementary particles. The lecture contains the overview of current particle and astroparticle experiments.
