CERN Courier magazine: December 2013 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the December 2013 issue of CERN Courier

This edition celebrates a number of anniversaries. Starting with the "oldest", 2013 saw the centenary of the birth of Bruno Pontecorvo, whose life and contributions to neutrino physics were celebrated with a symposium in Rome in September. Moving forwards, it is the 50th anniversary of the Institute for High Energy Physics in Protvino, Russia, and also of CESAR – CERN's first storage ring, which saw the first beam in December 1963 and paved the way for the LHC. More recently, a new network for mathematical and theoretical physics started up 10 years ago, re-establishing connections between scientists in the Balkans. At the same time, the longer-standing CERN School of Computing began a phase of reinvigoration. There is also a selection of books for more relaxed reading during the festive season.
