The Malagasy capital of Antananarivo welcomed HEP-MAD '01, Madagascar's first conference on high-energy physics, at the end of September last year
The problem of obtaining a precise measurement of one of the most elusive effects in particle physics has finally been overcome.
Two major new experiments have provided the first strong indications of the delicate CP violation effect in a totally new domain - the decays of B mesons (containing the fifth or "b" quark).
New results from the "B factories" could help to explain why a universe made of matter emerged from a Big Bang that created equal amounts of matter and antimatter.
A recent meeting in Cracow gave an overview of developments in B physics.
The DESY laboratory in Hamburg has accepted a proposal from the HERA-B experiment for a revised programme of research.
Last year the annual DESY Theory Workshop focused on rare physics - the physics that's hardest to do and sometimes difficult to understand. Andrzej Buras reports.
The world's largest data sample of J/psi particles produced directly from electron-positron annihilation has been accumulated with the BESII spectrometer at the BEPC collider in Beijing.
The year 2000 sees the debut of a new kind of precision physics. It formally began with the opening plenary talks at the International Conference on High Energy Physics, the biennial particle physic...
A neutrino experiment at Fermilab has seen the first direct evidence for the tau neutrino, the most elusive of the 12 particles that make up the Standard Model picture of the fundamental structure o...
