The world’s largest optical/near-infrared telescope, the Extremely Large Telescope, under construction in Chile, will bring mysteries such as dark energy into focus.
The decay of the K-short to two muons is sensitive to contributions from yet-to-be discovered particles that are too heavy to be observed directly.
More than 13,000 European scientists have objected to changes in the representation of education and research in the European Commission.
In 1997, Juan Maldacena conjectured a deep relationship between gravity and quantum field theory.
FPGAs can now be programmed in C++ and Java, bringing machine learning and complex algorithms within the scope of trigger-level analysis.
The CMS collaboration recently used a dedicated set of high-rate “scouting” triggers to search for a narrow resonance decaying to a pair of muons.
