Saturday Morning Physics
New Physics at the LHC: A Theorist's Perspective


Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 03/26/2011
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description:

    What are the most fundamental constituents of matter and what laws govern their behavior? We will briefly review our best-tested answers to these particle physics questions. More excitingly, we will discuss several reasons to think that "new" particle physics--hitherto inaccessible or untested--will be discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator.
