  • About the Edition

    POPULAR SCIENCE. CERN, the European Laboratory for particle physics, regularly makes the news. What kind of research happens at this international laboratory and how does it impact people"s daily lives? Why is the discovery of the Higgs boson so important? Particle physics describes all matter found on Earth, in stars and all galaxies but it also tries to go beyond what is known to describe dark matter, a form of matter five times more prevalent than the known, regular matter. How do we know this mysterious dark matter exists and is there a chance it will be discovered soon? About sixty countries contributed to the construction of the gigantic Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and its immense detectors. Dive in to discover how international teams of researchers work together to push scientific knowledge forward. Here is a book written for every person who wishes to learn a little more about particle physics, without requiring prior scientific knowledge.

What an engaging and comprehensive book on Particle Physics and all the exciting research at CERN. From start to finish, I enjoyed reading the book and was surprised there were still things that were new for me for instance in the many ways Pauline gave examples explaining physics concepts to laymen/women and the many intriguing not-widely known life stories of leading scientists/5.

This is a unique book. It covers the entire theoretical and experimental content of particle physics. Particle physics sits at the forefront of our search for the ultimate structure of matter at the smallest scale, but in the process it has also learned to question the nature of our space and time in which they exist.

Pauline Gagnon, an experimenter on the LHC’s CMS experiment, cut her teeth writing a widely read blog during the final two years of the search for the Higgs boson. Particle physics (also known as high energy physics) is a branch of physics that studies the nature of the particles that constitute matter and gh the word particle can refer to various types of very small objects (e.g.

protons, gas particles, or even household dust), particle physics usually investigates the irreducibly smallest detectable particles and the fundamental.particle physics remains a fertile ground for creative theorists.

While the Standard model of particle physics remains hugely successful, nevertheless it is still not fully regarded as a complete holistic description. This book describes the development of.Pauline Gagnon is the author of Who Cares about Particle Physics?
