The last few years have seen an explosion of ideas concerning naturalness, but we’re only at the beginning of our understanding, says theorist Nathaniel Craig.
It is high time we addressed the low representation of women in high-energy theoretical physics, says Marika Taylor.
"People say that string theory doesn’t make predictions, but that’s simply not true."
The conference brought together more than 100 researchers from 18 countries to discuss the latest results in precision calculations for particle physics at colliders.
If detected, even the tiniest violation of the exclusion principle would revolutionise physics.
The sixth International Conference on New Frontiers in Physics (ICNFP) took place on 17–29 August in Kolymbari, Crete.
An interview with Erik Verlinde, who argues that dark matter is an illusion caused by an incomplete understanding of gravity.
As in precision electroweak experiments, it is useful to parameterise plausible deviations from general relativity.
There is little doubt that, in spite of their overwhelming success in describing phenomena over a vast range of distances, general relativity (GR) and the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics are i...
The early 1970s was a pivotal period in the history of particle physics. Following the discovery of asymptotic freedom and the Brout–Englert–Higgs mechanism a few years earlier, it was the time wh...
