What is a particle?

Another interesting item I just found on Mastodon. A post with a link to quanta magazine on an article asking the very question above.

It is a very interesting and engaging article, great for anyone probably studying science from GCSE to A'level or above. I have added a link to discourse and a link to a discussion.

Particle Data Group

Just sent off for the latest report from the Particle Data Group [1], which has data on the various particles such as Quarks, Baryons, Leptons etc. Only sending for the shorter (286+ page one). Thank you to the Open University [2] Science forums for making me aware of this.

This is free and should be arriving within the next six to eight weeks apparently.

Should be really interesting to read, may also be useful for the Science study support group [4]

Update

My Particle databook has now arrived

Physics news 4th August 2020

Lots of interesting things happening at FermiLab then.

“US CMS is very proud to acknowledge the significant impact made by its members in deploying innovative analysis techniques, including cutting-edge AI methods, which were critical in establishing the evidence for Higgs boson decays into a muon and antimuon pair,”


It may be an idea to have an understanding, or a copy of the standard model of particle physics to hand.

This is also being discussed on the qoto discourse instance. Where there is also an updated standard model graphic.

You may also find Science Forums a good place to discuss.

This has also prompted me to try and figure out how to typeset the basic equation in LaTeX.

\H\longrightarrow \mu^{–} + \overline{\mu^{+}} $So to quote the$\textit{news.fnal.gov}$website • Please ignore the$'s at either side of the equation, these will be removed at some point.
