Seminar “Elementary Particle Physics” in Niš

On Monday, 25 February 2019, at the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics, Unibersity of Niš, Serbia, dr Maciej Trzebiński (Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences, Krakow, Poland ) will give a seminar

Elementary Particle Physics
Journey to the Innards of Our Universe

The seminar will be held at the amphitheater (no. 10) at the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics, starting at 17:00. The similar seminar will be given in Novi Sad.

Abstract: During the seminar we will briefly discuss the most fundamental questions: what is the Universe made of?, what are the rules guiding its evolution?, what are its origins?, and what is its destiny? Our journey will start from a brief description of tools used for such studies: particle accelerators and detectors. On example of the Higgs boson discovery, I will explain how new particles can be observed. Then, I will sum up our current best knowledge about the most basic structure of Universe. Finally, I will list some, still unanswered, questions.
