From Atoms to Higgs Bosons: Voyages in Quasi-Spacetime

1st Edition

Chary Rangacharyulu, Christopher J. A. Polachic
June 07, 2019

The announcement in 2012 that the Higgs boson had been discovered was understood as a watershed moment for the Standard Model of particle physics. It was deemed a triumphant event in the reductionist quest that had begun centuries ago with the ancient Greek natural philosophers. Physicists basked...
