Here is a nice introductory story on the Top Quark, presented by Fermilab


Also check out my TOP QUARK entry in my journal :

This is a cool website if your into Particle Physics - which I am among many other things - but I have to get up to speed on QCD, QFT, GUT and other things.

Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Virtual Visitor Center

Also -

High Energy Cosmic Rays

Electron Gamma Shower

Have fun!

Hey, Marlon - you were looking for physics opportunities in California. Well - here is one, but it is a bit of drive down to Hollywood!

Check THIS SITE if you wanna find out more on the concept of asymptotic freedom in QCD. You need to click on "Nobel Lectures" to read what the 2004 Nobel Laureates in Physics have to say on it.

PS : Did you guys know that the guy in the middle actually played in a movie with Paul Newman ?

If you wanna have a very introductory lesson in renormalization theory of the weak interaction, just read the Nobel Lecture of Gerardus 't Hooft, the 1999 Physics Nobel Prize Laureate.

Researchers report the first direct observation of the strange b baryon Xi_b^{-} or [tex]\Xi_b^{-} [/tex]


[itex]p\bar{p}[/itex] collisions at [itex]\sqrt{s}[/itex] = 1.96 TeV.

Hi everyone,

I was earlier today searching for online video material for students who asked me where to find it. I admit that such lectures are much more pleasant to follow than textbooks, although I myself never find the need for video material. The best would be to actually be able to attend the lecture interactively. In any case, it did not occur to me at first, but CERN as an amazing server full of countless presentations on all sorts of topics. Soome of them of incredible value.

You will find them by browsing their web server. Enjoy

Praising thanks to this wonderful initiative.

Revealing the Hidden Nature of Space and Time:
Charting the Course for Elementary Particle Physics

Principal Chapters:

1. The Scientific Excitement and Challenges 17-32
2. Key Questions in Particle Physics 33-55
3. The Experimental Opportunities 56-100
4. The Strategic Framework 101-117
5. Findings and Recommended Actions 118-135

As part of the Physics 2010 decadal survey project, the National Research Council was asked by the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation to recommend priorities for the U.S. particle physics program for the next 15 years. The challenge faced in this study was to identify a compelling leadership role for the United States in elementary particle physics given the global nature of the field and the current lack of a long-term and distinguishing strategic focus. Revealing the Hidden Nature of Space and Time provides an assessment of the scientific challenges in particle physics, including the key questions and experimental opportunities, the current status of the U.S. program and the strategic framework in which it sits and a set of strategic principles and recommendations to sustain a competitive and globally relevant U.S. particle physics program.
