Mankind’s ancient question न तत सूयो भाति न चनदतारकं नेमा विदयूतॉ भानि कूतोयः यमगनिः तवमेब भानताम् अनूभाति सव॔ तसय भासा सव॔मिदम विभाति In the beginning there was no sun, neither did the moon shine, nor the stars, man made light was no where. It is Your light that lit up everything else, Every thing in this world shines from Your light Where did everything come from? What is everything made up of?

Physicists’ latest answer The Standard Model of Particle Physics

Names of the actors: Matter All of matter is made up of spin ½ particles Leptons: electron (e), muon(  ), tau(  ) (charge -1 and +1) and 3 neutrinos (charge 0) Quarks: Up, down, charm, strange, top, bottom They have fractional charges (2/3 and -1/3)!!

All of matter is made up of spin ½ particles

Leptons:

electron (e), muon(  ), tau(  ) (charge -1 and +1) and 3 neutrinos (charge 0)

Quarks:

Up, down, charm, strange, top, bottom

They have fractional charges (2/3 and -1/3)!!

Names of the actors: Forces Forces are carried by spin 1 particles called guage bosons: Electromagnetic: photon Weak: W+-, Z0 Strong: gluon Gravitational: I don’t know – may be YOU will find out one day… quarks participate in all interactions (i.e. they can exchange photon, W, Z, gluon) Leptons can’t exchange gluons

Forces are carried by spin 1 particles called guage bosons:

Electromagnetic: photon

Weak: W+-, Z0

Strong: gluon

Gravitational: I don’t know – may be YOU will find out one day…

quarks participate in all interactions (i.e. they can exchange photon, W, Z, gluon)

Leptons can’t exchange gluons

Feynman Diagrams This is more than just a picture !

Without Higgs… Without Higgs we won’t be here because: All fundamental particles will be massless, travelling at the speed of light in vacuum Higgs boson – the charge less spin zero massive particle is the quantum of an all pervading Higgs field through which particles move – and interaction with this field gives them mass According to standard model

How to discover new particles? How do we discover Higgs? Good old principle : Produce the particle by colliding other particles Look at decay products Reconstructruct invariant mass Look for a peak in the invariant mass distribution Measure E,p, Get the mass of the original particle E1E2(1-cos(theta12)) Beware of fake products!

How do we discover Higgs?

Good old principle :

Produce the particle by colliding other particles

Look at decay products

Reconstructruct invariant mass

Look for a peak in the invariant mass distribution

Example

Plan for finding Higgs What do we collide? 7 Tera electron Volt Protons At what rate? Once every 25 nano seconds How often do we expect to see Higgs? A few every second. What will they decay to? Could be a pair of top-antitop or bottom antibottom or two photons or two Z0s… OK! So we just have to catch these particles and measure E,p

What do we collide? 7 Tera electron Volt Protons

At what rate? Once every 25 nano seconds

How often do we expect to see Higgs? A few every second.

What will they decay to? Could be a pair of top-antitop or bottom antibottom or two photons or two Z0s…

LHC in ACTION

Proton Proton is a rather complex bag of quarks and gluons

Proton  Proton 7 TeV 7 TeV

parton  parton Z 500 GeV 100 GeV Two partons, usually with different momenta collide and often anihilate giving rise to other particlesin the final state Beam axis Note: parton = quark, antiquark or gluon

Of quark bondage: Jets There is no free quark in the world Quarks and gluons, as they fly apart from each other – give birth to other quarks and gluons, eventually all these quarks and gluons combine with each other to make pions, nutrons, eta’s rho’s … known as hadrons They all more or less fly in the direction of the original quark/gluon and that is JET Jets are the only signatures of quarks and gluons that we can see experimentally Two charm quarks moving apart from each other

Luminosity and cross section If I shoot 10 11 protons every 25 ns through another 10 11 protons most of them will sail through. how many will collide/ sec? Out of every hundred collition how many will produce Higgs? Ans: no. of collisions / sec =  (10 11 X 10 11 )/25ns/500sq-micron (provided the beam cross section is 500 sq-micron). Sigma(  ) is called reaction cross section and contains the entire physics of all possible interactions between the colliding quarks and gluons (calculated by phenomenologists) The remaining terms in the formula together are called luminosity(L) In general: Number of collisions/sec =  L (the actual formula for luminosity is somewhat more complicated, which takes into account the crossing angle of the beams, lorentz contraction of the bunches etc.)
