Importance of theory and simulation in laying the case for building large colliders for multinational particle physics experiments

Higgs boson was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider located at the border between Switzerland and France, which delivered the most important theoretical validation underlying the basis for the funding and construction of the collider itself. Fitting in at the 125 GeV (eV: electronvolt) void in the Standard Model for Particle Physics, the search for … More Importance of theory and simulation in laying the case for building large colliders for multinational particle physics experiments

Citizen science projects utilizing spare computer time

There is a class of science projects where the common citizen can participate by providing spare computer time either through joining a citizen science group’s computer network, or by installing a software, which downloads part of the research problem onto the computer, uses spare computer time to do the necessary calculations, and uploads the results … More Citizen science projects utilizing spare computer time
