With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) running in full data taking mode since 2010, interest in its uses – such as the study of the underlying forces of nature, the production of new particles such as the Higgs boson, and the search for new physics processes such as evidence for supersymmetry – is still as high as at its launch.
This is your chance to hear Professor Peter Clarke discuss the physics motivation for the LHC and explore the computing and data management environment needed to realise the project.
About the speaker:
Peter Clarke is a Professor in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.
His early research work included the first measurements of direct CP violation in the Kaon system at the CERN NA31 experiment. At UCL he worked on construction of the ATLAS experiment for the Large Hadron Collider. He now works on studies of CP violation (the asymmetry between matter and anti-matter) as a member of the LHCb experiment at the LHC.
