Harvey B. Newman: Physics at the Large Hadron Collider

We have embarked on a journey at the frontier of high energies with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Using the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) and the LHC, two of the most complex instruments ever devised, and new methods developed at Caltech, we are homing in on the Higgs particles thought to be responsible for mass in the universe; searching for supersymmetry, which brings together particle physics and spacetime; and searching for evidence of extra dimensions of space and other exotic new particles. This lecture presents the latest results from the high-energy frontier of particle physics and offers perspective on the discoveries that lie ahead.

Harvey B. Newman is a professor of physics at Caltech.
