LHC experiments present latest results in Vienna http://cern.ch/go/G6qc  #EPSHEP2015
The world particle-physics community has convened in Vienna for the 2015 European Physical Society Conference on High Energy Physics (EPS-HEP2015), where the latest results in the field are being presented and discussed. These include the first results from Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN which are being presented for the very first time, less than two months after the experiments started to take data at the unprecedented energy ...

A laudable goal - collisions generate fearful amounts of data and in the bad old days the scrutiny and identification of tracks was performed by people.

I wonder, what other endeavours can such a trained algorithm-set be used on?

Nice one CERN!

+Marc Sander Yes, I am very fond of it, too.  I have a friend that lives inside the 27 Km ring - you can't tell. No extra heads, the tap water does not froth, no strange noises at night.
Unrelated, I have some friends that work there, too, for decades.  Hey, they have only got one head each, too!

Pentagram when proper picture is found! Pentaquarks hellllo!!!!
Find a perfect pentagram in all the data and you will find the purpose of the new particles Remember I told you so Roslyn subsonic S

+Just In Words it's not my cup of tea, and as a musician myself, I tend to be skeptical of the movement, but there is already several decades of history of experimental jazz doing exactly these sorts of projects, including a synthesizer concert in conjunction with the moon landing. Jazz musicians develop exactly the sort of musical tools to do just the sort of things you talk about in real time, little (if any) rehearsal necessary for a well practiced and experienced musician.

This presentation marks the start of Fragment.In’s artist residency at CERN.

The winning artists of the Collide@CERN Pro Helvetia residency award, the Collective "Fragment.In" are formed by Laura Perrenoud, Simon de Diesbach, and Marc Dubois. Along with their CERN scientific partner, they will present their work in art, science and technology, including their creative approach to data visualization.

Did you guess it? The image shows a close-up of the “Berlin Silicon Ball” (BSIB), a 20-cm diameter sphere composed of 158 pentagonal and hexagonal silicon detectors. It measured the energy and characteristics of charged particles at CERN’s low energy antiproton ring, and was part of the “PS208” experiment investigating the properties of hot nuclei. Read more from the January/February 1995 issue of the CERN Courier: http://cern.ch/go/v6Cl

The low energy antiproton ring (LEAR) was built in 1982 and ran until 1996 when it was converted into the Low Energy Ion Ring (LEIR), which provides lead-ion injection for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), read more: http://cern.ch/go/9zZN

Although no-one got exactly the right answer, congratulations goes to +Jerzy Michał Pawlak and Paresh Desai for being the closest to the correct answer to Friday’s post.

RIGINAL BOSNIAN INVENTION BY SENAD ŠEĆERBEGOVIĆ, PLEASE TRANSLATE AND READ,
ČLANAK NASLOV: "INOVACIJA INSTRUMENT KOJIME BI SE MOGLI DOBITI PODATCI O ČESTICAMA MANJIM OD ELEKTRONA I KVARKOVA"
 
DA BI SE OTKRILI PODATCI O ČESTICAMA KOJE SU UNUTAR KVARKOVA I ELEKTRONA TREBALO BI KONSTRUISATI INSTRUMENT ZA POSMATRANJE ANHILACIJE ČESTICA ANTI-ČESTICA. KAO ŠTO JE POZNATO PRI DODIRU KVARKA I ANTIKVARKA KAO I ELEKTRONA I POZITRONA NASTAJE NOVA ČESTICA. U SUŠTINI MANJE ČESTICE OD KOJI SU GRAĐENI KVARKOVI I ELEKTRONI PROMJENE PROSTORNU ORGANIZACIJU KADA SE STOPE U VEĆU ČESTICU. OVIM INSTRUMENTOM BI SE MOGLI DOBITI KVANTITATIVNI PODATCI O OVIM MANJIM ČESTICAMA, ALI NE I KVALITATIVNI ZA KOJE TREBA POREDITI KVANTITATIVNE PODATKE SA ZNANJEM O BOJI,CVRSTOCI,TALIŠTU I ELEKTRIČNOJ PROVODLJIVOSTI NEKOGA ELEMENTA.
KVANTITATIVNI PODATCI BI SE DOBIJALI POSMATRANJEM ANHILACIJE GDJE BI SE TREBALA POSTIĆI PRECIZNA MANIPULACIJA I POHRANJIVANJE ANTI ČESTICA NA JOŠ NEPOZNAT NAČIN, U TRENUTCIMA ANHILACIJE BI SE U VEZI SA ORJENTACIJOM ČESTICA PRATIO PRAVAC KRETANJA NOVE EMITOVANE ČESTICE NAPRIMJER NASTALOG FOTONA KAKO BI SE PREMA SMJERU RAZLIČITOM KRETANJA DEFINISAO RASPORED MANJI ČESTICA U ČESTICAMA RODITELJIMA PRIJE ANHILACIJE. VAŽNOST EKSPERIMENTA JE POTREBANA ZA MOGUĆNOST STVARANJA MATERIJALA I ELEMENATA SA NOVIM SVOJSTVIMA, KAO DANAS NESTABILNI IZOTOPI VISOKIH TEŽINA KOJI IMAJU ZNAČAJ, ZATIM STVARANJE MANJIH ATOMA I DRUGE KONKRETNE KORISTI. NAJČEŠĆE SE ČESTICA REZULTAT ANHILACIJE ISKAZUJE SVOJIM DJELOVANJEM KAO ENERGIJA, A ČESTICE RODITELJI KAO MATERIJA. OVAKAV INSTRUMENT BI PROIZIŠAO IZ ZNANJA O MANIPULACIJI SA ANTIČESTICAMA ,A MOGUĆE VEĆ ZA 8-10 GODINA BUDEMO MOGLI DOĆI DO OVAKVIH PODATAKA. MOGUĆE DA OVE MANJE ČESTICE OBJAŠNJAVAJU ZAŠTO SE ELEKTRON VJEČNO KREĆE, PREMDA IMA ODREĐENU MASU.

Exploring the frontiers of knowledge
Introduction
CERN is a truly unique organisation. A genuine collaboration between countries, universities and scientists, driven not by profit margins, but by a commitment to create and share knowledge.

People here are part of immense scientific discoveries, answering some of life’s most complex questions and pushing the boundaries of understanding. Experts from every field come here to share in this ambition and the nature of this collaborative, international community creates a genuine atmosphere of trust. People are free to work creatively and to trust in, and rely on, their colleagues across the organisation.

History’s being made here – and the excitement is tangible, inspiring, overwhelming at times. It is the only place in the world that you can do this work in this way!

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

The instruments used at CERN are particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.

Founded in 1954, the CERN Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 21 Member States.
