Colloquium - Chris Hill (The Ohio State University) - "The Discovery of the Higgs Boson"

August 28, 2012
All Day
1080 Physics Research Building, Smith Seminar Room - Reception at 3:45 p.m. in the Atrium


On July 4, 2012 the CMS and ATLAS experiments announced the discovery of a new particle that appears to be the long sought after Higgs boson.  I will present the data that were used to establish this particle’s existence and (try to) explain the significance of its observation.  I will also discuss preliminary measurements of the new particle’s properties and the implications of these for the future of the field.
