Quantum Physics II — Data collection, modelling, and analysis at CMS CERN
In this second part of the previous introductory article, we’ll tackle the more in-depth description of data collection, object modelling, and data analysis at CMS. The general workflow behind these kinds of experiments is complex, but I’ll try to give a brief description of each part so you can get a general idea of the whole process.
We‘ve been talking about particles and detectors, but an important question remains unanswered: what exactly is colliding? The answer is protons, or more exactly, bunches of protons. Accelerated through the LHC…
Quantum Physics I — the CERN data workflow in new Physics discoveries.
A comprehensive guide of the CERN workflow in new Physics discoveries.
Are you interested in learning more about particle physics? You might have heard terms like neutrinos, quarks, or dark matter mentioned before and want to know more about them. However, the literature and articles involved mainly use terms and concepts that the reader is supposed to already know, which makes them inaccessible to anyone not in this field.
In this article, I’ll provide an easy-to-understand explanation about everything you’d need to know to understand the main points…
