A field configuration is topologically non-trivial if it exhibits the topology of a “mathematical knot” in some space, real or otherwise.
The open symposium of the European Strategy for Particle Physics revealed a vibrant field in flux as it grapples with the next big questions.
At the European Strategy for Particle Physics, talks covered key questions in the field, and the accelerator, detector and computing technologies necessary to tackle them.
Despite the theory’s many appealing features, searches for SUSY at the LHC and elsewhere have so far yielded only exclusion limits.
If the new "T" quarks exist, they are expected to decay to a quark and a W, Z or Higgs boson.
We have conquered the easiest challenges in fundamental physics, says Nima Arkani-Hamed. The case for building the next major collider is now more compelling than ever.
A 6 m-long section will be cut into pieces and fed into a SQUID in the name of fundamental research.
The ATLAS collaboration carried out a first collider search for light scalar particles that could contribute to the accelerating expansion of the universe.
Why is the observed mass of the Higgs only 125 GeV?
Interest is growing in new experiments that probe dark-matter candidates such as axions and other very weakly interacting sub-eV particles.
