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 framework of the Standard Model, and it is the best theory we have at present.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
