"News from the Energy Frontier"


Yuri Gershtein , Florida State University
[Host: Bob Hirosky]
ABSTRACT:
It is exciting time for particle physics. Currently, Fermilab's Tevatron, the highest energy accelerator, delivered more than 1 fb-1 to the experiments (CDF and DZero). In just over a year, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN will turn on, moving the energy frontier by almost an order of magnitude - an event the likes of which we did not see in almost three decades. I will talk about the fundamental questions that are addressed by doing physics at the energy frontier, present some new results from DZero experiment and describe the status and prospects of the CMS detector at the LHC.
