  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 10/18/2003
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Miller Lecture 10/18/2003
  • Description: Massive, unstable elementary particles decay quickly into a cascade of subatomic particles. Without ever directly measuring the original particle, we can find out its mass and everything else we want to know about it from the pieces of its decay. Dr. Stephen Miller will explain how these new particles are discovered and the search for the Higgs boson - the particle that explains the property of mass itself.
