A Universe of Fermionic Matter bound together by Bosonic Fields. A long series of experiments and theoretical studies and advances has established the so-called Standard Model of elementary particle physics. This theory encompasses the electromagnetic theory (unified by Maxwell), the weak interaction (responsible for radioactive decays of for instance the neutron and the muon, and for the burning of hydrogen into helium and heavier elements in the Sun), and the strong interaction (which binds protons and neutrons inside the nucleus). We know that the Standard Model in incomplete, in that it does not describe the, much weaker, gravitational interaction in the same quantum mechanical framework, because a number of features are not understood in the model, and, finally, because calculations break down at energies of a few TeV, energies which will become accessible by 2005 at the Large Hadron Collider being built at CERN near Geneva. However, all present data are in excellent agreement with predictions made within the
