Higgs boson decay model
Higgs boson decay model. Simulated computerdisplay of the decay of a Higgs boson in the CMS(compact muon solenoid) detector at CERN (theEuropean particle physics laboratory) near Geneva, Switzerland. The detector will be placed aroundthe large hadron collider (LHC), CERN's highestenergy particle accelerator. Proton beams will beaccelerated and collided head on in the LHC, andthe CMS will detect the resultant particles. Themain goal of the experiment is the discovery ofthe Higgs boson, an elementary particle predictedby the Standard Model of particle physics, but yetto be directly detected (as of 2006). A pilot runof the LHC is scheduled for summer 2007.
