An Evening of Learning with Glenn Starkman
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Please join the Jewish Alumni Network and the CWRU Alumni Association for an evening of learning with Professor Glenn Starkman.
So What's the Big Deal About this Higgs Boson?
The Higgs Boson is the last remaining undiscovered particle whose existance is required by the Standard Model of particle physics. This scientific theory of the interactions of the fundamental constituents of nature is arguable the most successful such theory in the history of science at making precise predictions that have been verified. Over the last two years, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have made progressively more confident announcements that they have discovered a new particle whose properties are those of "the Higgs."
We will discuss what it take to make such a discovery, why the Higgs is of such particular interest, and why it matters that no other particles have so far been discovered at the LHC.
We look forward to seeing you there!
