Symmetries underpin much of modern physics and, as a consequence, are sensitive probes for new phenomena. Neil Russell reports from a recent meeting held at Indiana University, where physicists discus...
An experiment at Long Island's Brookhaven laboratory has just reported a long-awaited result: the observation of only the second decay of a positive kaon into a positive pion accompanied by a neutrino...
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany, have reported evidence of neutrinoless double beta decay.
Tests of the Standard Model of particle physics are largely the domain of high-energy particle accelerators.
After detecting hints of the long-awaited Higgs particle, CERN's LEP electron-positron collider closed at the end of 2000 and is now being dismantled. The search for the Higgs - the missing link in ...
A new precision measurement of the muon's magnetism during an experiment at Brookhaven has shown a tiny unexplained discrepancy.
In an entirely new energy range and with its special experimental conditions, the LHC could also discover other new physics effects.
With construction work for CERN's LHC and its big detectors under way a workshop, Standard Model Physics at the LHC, was held at CERN.
Some of the most compelling questions in particle physics today are to do with the Higgs boson and supersymmetry (SUSY).
Do particles and their antiparticles behave in the same way? Even tiny differences could be amplified over astronomical distances to produce very large effects.
