Taking a closer look at LHC
Santiago University (USC)
|High Energy Physics Group (GAES) at the University of Santiago de Compostela The experimental High Energy Physics Group at the University of Santiago de Compostela focuses its research activity in quark physics, trying to probe the limits of the Standard Model. The main current project is Flavour Physics and CP-violation at the LHCb experiment at CERN, which will make an accurate mapping of the quark mixing matrix, specially the phases between the second and third generations. Since its creation in 1993, the group has participated in two precision experiments at CERN, the Spin Muon Collaboration SMC (quark contributions to proton spin and QCD sum rules) and the DIRAC experiment (Pionium lifetime measurement as a test of Chiral Perturbation Theory).|
GAES is one of the participating sites in the deployment of a computing:
