A quick reminder that tonight at 6 Pacific/9 Eastern, Sean Carroll and I will be interviewed by Alan Boyle on the online radio show “Virtually Speaking Science”. Topics will cover the LHC and other hot issues in physics, astrophysics, gravity and cosmology, as well as the scientific process. See Monday’s post for the link to the show and other details.
Continuing my more careful summary of the Higgs Symposium (held January 9-11 at the University of Edinburgh, as part of the new Higgs Center for Theoretical Physics), and improving on my quick blog posts that I put up during and just after the symposium (#1, #2 and #3), I’ve finished another article about our current knowledge and ignorance concerning the recently discovered Higgs-like particle. The new article
covers a topic that I spoke about extensively at the Symposium. The other completed articles in this series are
- 0. Introduction: Taking Stock of the “Higgs”
- 1. Is the Newly Discovered Particle a Higgs Particle of Some Type?
- 2. If the New Particle is a Higgs Particle, Might it be Composite?
- 3. Might the New Particle be a Higgs of the Simplest Possible Type (the Standard Model Higgs)?
- 4. Might there be more than one type of Higgs particle? Has our recent discovery been just the first of several that are still to come?
- 5. Supersymmetry: What Does The New Particle Teach Us About This Possibility?
One or two more segments to go.
