    Without the Higgs Boson throwing its weight around, we d all resemble mucoid strings of unpalatable jello Orso.I have desperately wanted to put together a review that, in compartmentalized but orderly fashion, connects the various utterly absorbing stories which Carroll is telling in this highly recommended book about the discovery of the elusive Higgs Boson on July 4th, 2012, at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland a review wherein the politics, person...

    Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist, and he has written an engaging book about the history of the search for the Higgs boson This is a fundamental particle that cannot be observed directly, but can only be surmised by indirect evidence in a high energy accelerator Its existence was proved by two experiments at the LHC Large Hadron Collider at CERN, on the border between Switzerland and France.Sean Carroll tells the story of the LHC wonderfully He tells the story of the predecessors to L Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist, and he has written an engaging book about the history of the search for the Higgs boson This is a fundamental particle that cannot be observed directly, but can only be surmised by indirect evidence in a high energy accelerator Its existence was proved by two experiments at the LHC Large Hadron Collider at CERN, on the border between Swi...

    Each book about the standard model has its own personality,this one aside to rather briefly describing the model iscentered in tell the history of discovery of the Higgs boson announced by the CERN in July of 2012 and the histhory of the differen particle accelerators and its incerasing energies,Tevatron,SLAC,RHIC and others,but specially the Large Hadron Collider ruled by the C...

    I know I ve been reading a lot of non fiction lately yet another example of my whims, I think There s a fewphysics books on my list to get to, too, though I might give them a bit of a rest right now The problem with me reviewing all of these is, of course, that I wouldn t know a Higgs boson if it came up and introduced itself All I can say is how well I understand what the writers offer In Sean Carroll s case, I felt my understanding was pretty good the chapters are relatively short I know I ve been reading a lot of non fiction lately yet another example of my whims, I think There s a fewphysics books on my list to get to, too, though I might give them a bit of a rest right now The problem wi...

    If the definition of understanding a subject is being able to summarise it in your own words for the benefit of someone else then I admit failure Whilst I learnt a lot from this book there was still much that I couldn t fully comprehend Nevertheless, I doubt that any other author could explain the concept of the Higgs field and Higgs boson in a better way than Sean Carroll He has a talent for putting across difficult ideas in a way that non specialists can follow Yet even he, at least as far If the definition of understanding a subject is being able to summarise it in your own words for the benefit of someone else then I admit failure Whilst I learnt a lot from this book there was s...

    Grats everyone we found the Higgs Our money wasn t wasted, and we will continue to learn from the data gathered at the LHC for a long time The author takes a look at the pioneering work that went into the building of the accelerators and the scientific work of those leading up to this finding and what it will mean for us in the long term I read this back to back with Lee Smolins work the trouble with physic I find this an interesting companion to this work and highly advise to read the two Grats everyone we found the Higgs Our money ...

    Actually 4.5 star, but I love this book There doesn t seem to be a quick easy way to describe what the Higgs boson is, what it does and why we should care Carroll carefully and methodically takes the reader through each of these and I, a person with no physics background, am actually learning and understanding about particle physics at a layperson level, obviously I think I need to read it a second time to really solidify my understanding, but I ve learned tons on just this first reading N Actually 4.5 star, but I love this book There doesn t seem to be a quick easy way to describe what the Higgs boson is, what it does and why we should care Carroll carefully and methodically takes the reader through each of these and I, a person with no physics background, am actually learnin...

    Sean Carroll effectively communicates his knowledge and enthusiasm about the search and discovery of the Higgs boson After reading this book a person can explain the significance of the discovery and share in the excitement of the collective accomplishment In addition, the exposure to Carroll s scientific mind, equal parts skepticism and wonder, is time well spent Carroll is willing to speak in declarative sentences, not a lot of hedging here Matter is really waves quantum fields and paren Sean Carroll effectively communicates his knowledge and enthusiasm about the search and discovery of the Higgs boson After reading this book a person can explain the significance of the discovery and share in the excitement of the collective accomplishment In addition, the exposure to Carroll s scientific mind, equal parts skepticism and wonder, is time well spent Carroll is willing to speak in declarative sentences, not a lot of hedging here Matter is really waves quantum fields a...
