Update on the search for the Higgs boson by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN

Update on the search for the Higgs boson by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN | HiggsForXmas | Scoop.it
Geneva, 6 December 2011. A seminar will be held at CERN on 13 December at which the ATLAS and CMS experiments will present the status of their searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson. These results will be based on the analysis of considerably more data than those presented at the summer conferences, sufficient to make significant progress in the search for the Higgs boson, but not enough to make any conclusive statement on the existence or non-existence of the Higgs.

Potrebbe non esistere. Non c'è modo di calcolarne la massa, e ve ne chiediamo scusa.

Taking a closer look at LHC - PHYSICS AT LHC

Taking a closer look at LHC - PHYSICS AT LHC | HiggsForXmas | Scoop.it

Physicists think that only a 5-sigma result, indicating a 99.99995 percent chance that the result can be reproduced, is trustworthy and can survive the test of time. A "5σ significance" describes effects where the chance of random occurrence is smaller than a few parts in tens of millions, and is agreed to be enough to claim the discovery of a new particle or phenomenon.

Molti esperimenti hanno cercato di scoprire il Bosone di Higgs ma nessuna evidenza conclusiva sulla sua esistenza è stata trovata. Malgrado questo sia stato motivo di disappunto per gli scienziati che stavano cercando questa particella, gli esperimenti hanno posto un limite inferiore all’energia richiesta per produrre il Bosone di Higgs. Ora, con il Large Hadron Collider (LHC), l’acceleratore di particelle più grande e potente al modo, si cercherà di scoprire il Bosone di Higgs. Una delle motivazione primarie per la costruzione di LHC è stata la rivelazione di questa particella.

An oft-cited analogy describes it well: Imagine you're at a Hollywood party. The crowd is rather thick, and evenly distributed around the room, chatting.
