Higgs: the story of the beginning

Videos: AAA | 11 July 2013 Hitoshi Murayama, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration, explains the Higgs (in Japanese) in a three-part video series entitled “Universe and matter – the story of the beginning.” Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , ,

Higgs search presentations at ICHEP 2012

| 9 August 2012 Last month, both LHC experiments at CERN announced the discovery of a new particle with mass of 125.5 GeV, which is likely the long-sought Higgs boson. It made headlines worldwide. This is indeed an exciting moment for particle physicists and it came just prior to our largest scientific meeting, the biannual International Conference on High Energy Physics ICHEP held in Melbourne, Australia. In Melbourne, the detailed and impressive scientific evidence was presented to the worldwide particle physics community. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

In front of the door to a new world

| 26 July 2012 The discovery of the Higgs-like particle at the LHC is exciting news for the whole community. The physics-and-detetor Detailed Baseline Design report, along with a sound physics case that allows studies of and beyond the Standard Model, is on the to-do list and must be finished when more definite news about the particle come out.

From symmetry magazine: Through a muon’s eyes

7 June 2012 Alongside a story on muons—the short-lived cousins of the electron— symmetry magazine in its June 2012 issue features a silent movie about the Standard Model of Particle Physics. See quarks dancing, the Higgs entering the scene and get your own answer to the question mark at the end! Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

The Higgs mandate

| 16 February 2012 One of the primary goals of the next global ILC workshop in Daegu, Korea, in April 2012 is to clarify the physics mandate of the ILC corresponding to narrowed-down physics scenarios, based in particular on LHC results from the Higgs boson search.
