Coast to Coast Seminar Series: "A Tour of Particle Physics"

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Department of Physics, University of Toronto / TRIUMF


Particle physics is entering a new era with the startup of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva. This revolutionary new instrument will open the door to many new discoveries that will shed light on the structure of the Universe at the highest energy scales ever studied. This talk is a survey of the important open questions in particle physics, many of which will be addressed at the LHC. It will also serve as an introduction to the subsequent colloquia in the Coast-to-Coast series for winter/spring 2010.
