The Large Electron Positron collider made significant contributions to the process of establishing the Standard Model as the basis for matter and forces, and also built a platform for physics scenario...
Pierre Darriulat, who was spokesperson for the UA2 collaboration between 1978 and 1985, looks back at the events surrounding the discovery of the W and Z particles at CERN in 1983.
The International Europhysics Conference on High Energy Physics of the European Physical Society (HEP-EPS) provided a superb synergy between physics, history and music, as Felicitas Pauss reports.
Guido Altarelli reviews in 2003 Fundamentals of Electroweak Theory.
I have been asked to speak here not so much because of my personal recollections of Willibald Jentschke, but to speak on physics at CERN during his regime.
Leon Lederman, former director of Fermilab, once described the development of particle physics as frequently a story of false trails, crossed wires, sloppy techniques, misconceptions and misunderstand...
The W and Z particles were first observed at CERN 20 years ago by the UA1 and UA2 experiments. Daniel Denegri, who worked with UA1, recollects the spirit of discovery at the time.
As well as taking proton-proton and heavy-ion physics into a new energy regime, CERN's LHC will produce the world's highest-energy photon-hadron interactions, providing a powerful fundamental physics ...
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 measurements gave a value for an electroweak parameter that was three standard deviations higher than predicted by the Standard Model.
