Particle Physics Experiment

We seek an understanding of the fundamental particles of nature and the interactions (forces) governing their behaviour. In particular, we seek to explain the dominance of matter over anti-matter through the study of CP violation with the LHCb experiment, to understand the mechanisms of electroweak symmetry breaking that lead to the creation of mass at ATLAS and future colliders, to discover and characterise particle dark matter with the LUX-ZEPLIN experiment, and to explore neutrino oscillations, violation of lepton number and neutrinos of astrophysical origin with DUNE and HyperK. Extensive distributed Grid computing (GridPP) is used to store and analyse the vast quantities of data that are produced in these endeavours.
