Answer: because NAvogadro = 6.0221023 (mol)-1 Energy of a mosquito is distributed among ~ 1022 nucleons. On the other hand, total energy stored in each beam is 2808 bunches 1011 protons/bunch 7 TeV/proton = 360 MJ It is explosive energy of ~ 100 kg TNT or kinetic energy of “Admiral Kuznetsov” cruiser traveling at 8 knots.**Particle acceleration**• Charged particles influenced by applied electric and magnetic fields according to the Lorentz force: F = q (E + v B) = dp/dt E field → energy gain, B field → curvature • CERN has a wide variety of accelerators, some dating back to 1950s • LHC machine re-uses the tunnel excavated for previous accelerator (LEP)Others (PS/SPS) used to accelerate protons before injection into the LHC Neutrino beam,low energy beamsand p fixed-target beams all running in parallel with LHC**The LHC**Reality Originalidea From an article in the CERN Courier**Dipole magnets used to deflect the particlesRadius r [m] =**3.33 p [GeV] / B [T] • For the LHC, the machine has to fit in the existing 27 km tunnel, about 2/3 of which isused for active dipole field → r~ 2800 mSo to reach p = 7 TeV requires B = 8.3 T • Beams focused using quadrupole magnetsBy alternating Focusing and Defocusing quadrupoles, can focus in both x and y views The LHC has 1232 dipoles 392 quadrupoles**Flavor physics:**informal introduction**The Standard Model Zoo**SU(3)SU(2)U(1) [ g; W, Z; ] Masses come out of interactions in the Standard Model and these interactions conserve (or do not conserve…) particular symmetries. Mass hierarchies (from hep-ph/0603118). The heaviest fermion of a given type has unit mass.**Invariance properties with respect to transformations**have been always important in physics • momentum • angular momentum • energy • translations in • rotations in • time translations invariance conservation Gauge symmetry – invariance with respectto transformations in «internal» space In the SM this space has structure ofU(1) × SU(2) × SU(3)**U(1) × SU(2) × SU(3)**gluon photon Z, W And gravity is everywhere leptons quarks Quarks are unique probes of the whole «internal space», hence flavor physics has to deal with weak, electromagnetic and strong interactions altogether**Besides continuous symmetries of prime importance in high**energy physics are discrete transformations • С – charge conjugation • P – space inversion • Т – time reflection Experimental fact: strong and electromagnetic interactions in the SM are C, P, T, CP, CT, PT and CPTinvariant.**Maximal symmetry is not so interesting…**Beauty slightly broken symmetry**СРТ theorem:**Antiparticles and their interactions are indistinguishable from particles moving along the same world-lines but in opposite directions in 3+1 dimensional space-time. In particular, the mass of any particle is strictly equal to the mass of its antiparticle (experimentally checked in 1 part to 1018 in K-meson studies). The SM strictly conserves CPT. There are no however any theoretical reason why C, P and T should conserve separately. Often in physics if something can happen – it does.**Weak interactions violate P-parity**T.D.Lee, C.N.Yang, 1956 C.S.Wu, 1957**L.D.Landau, 1959:**hypothesis of combined CP-parity conservation J.Cronin, V.Fitch, 1964: CP-violation discovery in neutral K-mesons decays.****CP violation In the world of elementary particles: (CPLEAR 1999) neutral kaon decay time distribution anti-neutral kaon decay time distribution**Later CP-violation has been beautifully measured by**experimentsBaBar and BELLE at the B factories These are machines (in the US and Japan) running on the (4S) resonance: e+e-(4S) B0B0 or B+B- • The CP asymmetry A(t) = G(B0 J/yKS) -G(B0 J/yKS) G(B0 J/yKS) +G(B0 J/yKS) A(t) = -sin2b sinDmt in the Standard Model • BABAR+BELLE measuresin2b = 0.674 ± 0.026 • This can be compared withthe indirect measurementfrom other constraints on theUnitarity Triangle**M. Kobayashi, T.Maskawa, 1974:**theoretical mechanism for CP-violation in the SM Idea: nontrivial superposition of non-interacting particles forms flavor eigenstate that interacts weakly In other words: it is impossible to diagonalize simultaneously the mass term and charged currents interaction term:**It is easy to show that arbitrary complex unitaryN×N**matrix can be parameterized by N(N-1)/2 generalized Euler angles and (N-1)(N-2)/2 complex phases. ForN<3 the matrix can always be rotated to an equivalent one which is real. But not for N=3. In other words, there exist 3×3 unitary matrices which cannot be made real whatever phases quark fields are chosen to have.**Baryogenesis**• Big Bang (~ 14 billion years ago) → matter and antimatter equally produced; followed by annihilation → nbaryon/ng ~ 10-10Why didn’t all the matter annihilate (luckily for us)? • No evidence found for an “antimatter world” elsewhere in the Universe • One of the requirements to produce an asymmetric final state (our world) from a symmetric matter/antimatter initial state (the Big Bang)is that CP symmetry must violated [Sakharov, 1967] • CP is violated in the Standard Model, through the weak mixing of quarksFor CP violation to occur there must be at least 3 generations of quarksSo problem of baryogenesis may be connected to why three generations exist, even though all normal matter is made up from the first (u, d, e, e) • However, the CP violation in the SM is not sufficient for baryogenesisOther sources of CP violation expected → good field to search for new physics**CKM matrix can be parameterized by four parameters in many**different ways. The so called «Wolfenstein parametrization» is based on expansion in powers of**It is convenient to discuss the properties of CKM matrix**in parametrization-invariant terms. Such invariant are absolute values of the matrix elements and «angles» between them If any of these angles is different from zero, it means that there is a complex phase in CKM matrix which cannot be rotated away. This violates CP. «Jarlskog invariant»**Off-diagonal unitarity conditions can be represented as**triangles on complex plane. The Unitarity triangle: All 6 unitarity triangles have equal area but only two of them are not degenerate.
