Physics Seminar: The Discovery of the Higgs Boson

4:30 PM  - 5:30 PM
Thursday Oct 31, 2013
Room 150, Olin-Rice Science Center

Dr. Soeren Prell, Professor of Physics, Iowa State University, Department of Physics and Astronomy will talk about the discovery of the Higgs Boson.

Ths 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics was awaraded for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the Higgs Boson by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We will report on the discovery, the experimental effort that enabled it, and what else might be discovered at the LHC.

Refreshments at 4 PM in the first floor atrium, OLRI.
