Hadron Colliders Physics - a historical perspective

18.04.2018 11:15 – 12:15

Experiments at hadron colliders have been a key driver of the establishment of the Standard Model of particle physics as one of the most powerful and successful scientific theories. This has been possible by the development of a sequence of hadron accelerators and corresponding experiments that started with the advent of the ISR and has culminated with today's state of the art, the LHC and its four major experiments. We review the physics highlights of this period, which covers almost five decades, in an attempt to summarize some lessons learned and how we have arrived at today's ATLAS and CMS experiments that have already registered one major discovery and are out on the hunt for a deeper understanding of the Standard Theory and the hunt for physics beyond.
