Latest Electroweak theory Stories
If commissioning work goes well, the Large Hadron Collider could soon start a search for new sub-atomic particles, as early as the end of this summer.
Fermilab team of physicists analyze two-lepton data.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the US, have performed sophisticated laser measurements to detect the subtle effects of one of nature's most elusive forces - the "weak interaction".
In a forthcoming Physical Review Letters article, a group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno are reporting a refined analysis of experiments on violation of mirror symmetry in atoms that sets new constraints on a hypothesized particle, the extra Z-boson.
The Large Hadron Collider is an enormous particle accelerator whose 17-mile tunnel straddles the borders of France and Switzerland. A group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno has analyzed data from the accelerator that could ultimately prove or disprove the possibility of a fifth force of nature.
Analyzing several years' worth of results from Fermilab's Tevatron collider, physicists come up with the most accurate measurement to date of the mass of the W boson, and narrow down the possible mass of the still undiscovered Higgs boson
Scientists of the DZero collaboration at the Department of Energyâ€™s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory have achieved the worldâ€™s most precise measurement of the mass of the W boson by a single experiment.
NOW that the euphoria and hype surrounding the search for the Higgs boson - using the Large Hadron Collider at Cern - have eased somewhat, it is perhaps opportune to raise a couple of important questions on the methodology of physical science, which seem to have been largely ignored or forgotten in the meantime.
British physicist Peter Higgs said Monday he believes the discovery of a subatomic particle, whose existence he postulated about 40 years ago, would take place within the next year.
