As ICTP reaches its first half-century, the current director talks about the contribution that theorists make to society.
Steven Weinberg reflects on spontaneous symmetry breaking - an idea particle physicists learnt from Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer's theory of superconductivity.
Gravity and particle physics took centre stage at last year's DESY theory workshop. As chairman of the organizing committee Dieter Lüst reports, there was plenty to talk about.
John Ellis explains how far and how deep the implications of CP violation extend.
Gerry Bauer explains the background to CP violation and points out how a range of new experiments to explore the phenomenon in a new setting should see much larger effects.
