The leading scientist in the field of high energy physics from the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), Honorary Professor of TPU Maxim Titov will hold an open lecture on November 14 at Tomsk Polytechnic University. He will talk about the discovery of the Higgs boson and the prospects of high energy physics. The lecture in English is scheduled at 4:10 pm, in 310 lecture hall, TPU Main building (30, Lenin Ave.).
CERN houses the world’s largest experimental facility: the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that is the most powerful particle collider. The aim of the LHC is to allow physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics, including measuring the properties of the Higgs boson and searching for the large family of new particles predicted by supersymmetric theories, as well as other unsolved questions of physics.
Maxim Titov will lecture on future directions in particle physics and demonstrate the relationship between science, technology and innovation in the current and planned Mega Science projects which are designed to ensure scientific and technological development of the society.
Prospective large-scale experiments in particle physics should lay the foundation for the comprehensive cooperation in the international scientific community and research laboratories around the world.
Noteworthy, TPU is an active participant of six CERN collaborations and a member of four major experiments. In addition, TPU scientists are taking part in the upgrade of the LHC detectors.
