Summary:
The search for the elementary constituents of the physical universe and the interactions between them has transformed over time and continues to evolve today, as we seek answers to questions about the existence of stars, galaxies, and humankind. Integrating both theoretical and experimental work, Exploring Fundamental Particles traces the development of this fascinating field, from the discoveries of Newton, Fermi,

   schema:description "The book first examines the experiments and theoretical ideas that gave rise to the standard model. It then covers the discoveries of CP violation in the decays of kaons and B mesons as well as future experiments that could detect possible CP violation beyond the standard model. The authors also present experimental results involving the once-mysterious neutrino. The final section focuses on the one undetected particle of the Standard model: the Higgs boson. The authors highlight recent experiments of Tevatron particle accelerator at Farmilab, along with the near future impact of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and the longer term impact of the International Linear Collider (ILC)."@en ;
