PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — With the recent restart of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, scientists are looking forward to a new era of particle physics. In 2012, researchers working at the collider found the Higgs boson, the last missing piece of the standard model of particle physics. Now, scientists are searching for new physics beyond the standard model.
On Monday, April 20, 2015, Rolf-Dieter Heuer, director general of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), will come to Brown to deliver the 2015 Arthur O. Williams Lecture. Heuer will discuss the historic discovery of the Higgs boson, as well as future insights the Large Hadron Collider will provide into the nature of mass, dark matter, and other fundamental questions in physics.
