Happy Higgs Day?

Dont forget that today there will be big announcements of the latest results from the LHC about the search for the Higgs…(and some of us are hoping for news about what might be the beginning of the search for what lies beyond…)

There are so many live blogs, so follow a few… Like Resonances… for an expert view, Matt Strassler, for another expert view, or Quantum Diaries, for a non-expert view.


(update… Looks like it is a strong enough set of results, statistically, to call the Higgs discovered… Hurrah! And with possible hints of new physics too? Excellent….)

Further update… A CERN press release is to be found here. Also, looks like any deviation from the standard model Higgs, at least for the decay channels examined so far, is very small… So there’s a lot left to do and understand…

    Great! Are people high-fiving you randomly as you walk down the street?

    Great news. Being one of his former students, I think the time is ripe to enjoy some…namedropping:)

    …nah, but they should !!!

    LOL 😀

    Wonderful to see the Higgs finally come into view. Looking forward to having its qualities unfolded over the coming months.
