Look out for the #outreach tag!
On the last week of April 2017, I’ll be writing one post per day on relevant topics in HEP. The links will become live in time:
- Monte Carlo Monday : what are Monte Carlo samples and why do we need them? Learn how to use simulated data to hunt for new particles.
- TeV scale Tuesday : why are we so bothered with energy scales and why is now a crucial time in particle physics? Also, what even is a “TeV”?
- Will we find new physics Wednesday : between tantalizing hints and a plain discovery desert, where are we going? (warning : completely subjective!)
- Three minute thesis Thursday : a note on the TMT initiative, and my attempt at a (very) simplified explanation of my thesis.
- Fast Chain Friday : between state-of-the-art computing and that’s-good-enough-for-me physicists, how do plan on running LHC analysis in the future?
- Symmetry breaking Saturday : what are symmetries and why do they break? Learn why that’s not actually so bad (involves a glass of water and the Higgs boson).
- Supersymmetry Sunday : building on the posts of the previous days, how can we motivate supersymmetry (SUSY for friends) and look for it at the LHC?
