Los Alamos Science No. 11, summer/fall 1984

Particle Physics

During the second half of the 20th century, the field of elementary particle physics brought a major new understanding of the world at the smallest scales. That knowledge, summarized in the so-called Standard Model of particle physics, has remained valid for over 25 years. This volume is a tutorial by members of LANL's Theoretical Division that explains to scientists outside of the field the most important ideas of the Standard Model. It also includes speculations on extensions of the Standard Model to include the effects of gravity. The most accessible piece in the volume is an informal discussion about personal views and experiences in the particle physics enterprise.
