Tim Tait: “Why look for the Higgs?”

For those of you who are itching to learn more about the Higgs in anticipation of the Higgs announcement and Aidan’s liveblog, I encourage you to check out Tim Tait’s recent colloquium at SLAC titled, “Why look for the Higgs?” It’s an hour-long talk aimed at a non-physics audience (Tim says “engineers and programmers”).

Tim is a professor at UC Irvine whose enthusiasm and natural ability to explain physics carries through in his talk.

Last summer Tim was a co-director for the “Theoretical Advanced Study Institute in Elementary Particle Physics” summer school for graduate students. I heard that the students tried to get Tim’s portrait immortalized on the official school t-shirt.

For more SLAC colloquia and public lectures, see their channel on YouTube.
