Advent Calendar 2012 December 10th

10 is for the missing 10th particle. It’s no longer missing! A single event completed our view of the light spin-3/2 baryons.

See the movie Decay: http://www.decayfilm.com/

Apologies for the lateness, I’m playing catch-up following a busy week and many technical issues!

9 is for the 9 elements of the neutrino mixing matrix. Why do they mix? What does it tell us? Does this give us even more matter-antimatter asymmetry?

8 is for gluons! They’re strong, they’re coloured, and you can never catch one all by itself!

“Who ordered that?!” Those infamous words, uttered by Rabi, were the first sign that there was more to the universe than just protons, neutrons and electrons. Meet the muon!

5 is for pentaquarks, the exotic baryons that got discovered and then undiscovered!

What has 3 sides and violates CP? The unitarity triangle!

2 is for isospin. One of the most useful symmetries for two particles, hopeless for all the rest!
