Joseph Incandela, UC Santa Barbara and CERN
Monday, October 24, 2016 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN LHC accelerator complex completes a powerful and comprehensive description of nature known as the standard model of particle physics. The next step is to find the new physics that underpins this model, which many physicists believe could solve mysteries first seen in astrophysical and cosmological data, such as dark matter. Professor Incandela will give a general overview of where things stand now and what is being planned for the future in order to address these very fundamental questions about the universe.
