Particle Physics and Cosmology

Introduction

All visible matter in the Universe is made of elementary constituents such as quarks and leptons (electrons and so on). Their interactions are mediated by particles such as photons, gluons and weak bosons. The theory that describes our current understanding of particle physics is known as the Standard Model.

Research in particle physics aims at a better understanding of the Standard Model (quantum chromodynamics and electroweak theory), and at the discovery of what lies beyond the energy scales that have already been explored. It is driven by the experimental results obtained at particle colliders such as the LHC.
