New particle-like structure confirmed at the LHC

Scientists at the CMS experiment at CERN have spotted an exotic combination of particles previously observed in the CDF experiment at Fermilab.


Physicists show strengthened signals of Higgs-like particle in publications


Particle physics tames big data

As science produces an ever-growing flood of information, researchers in many fields struggle with how to collect, store, manage and distribute “big data.” Perhaps they could learn a th
