All about muons and mesons

Electrons, bosons, positrons…but also muons and mesons, these last two particles cause real chaos in the so-called standard models of particle physics. 58N Episode 6 Science Podcast Science and the future NS 20 minutesNS It explains all about the real “Big Bang” currently occurring in matter physics.

The latest experiments conducted by the most powerful particle accelerator in the world

At the microphone, Fabrice Nicot, journalist from Science and the future An expert in astronomy and physics answers Roman Golomes’ questions 20 minutes.

Both detail the anomalies revealed by recent experiments conducted in LHCb (Cern)NS The world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator is located on the Swiss-French border.

Minor review: Meson b is a quark and an antiquark, which decays in two equally likely ways, according to the Standard Model of particle physics.

Statistical anomaly or true novelty?

However, according to recent manipulations, some of which have already been published in leading journals, one decay pathway appears to dominate the other, a result completely incompatible with what physicists know about the behavior of elementary particles. Statistical anomaly? A real novelty? Needless to say, physicists are confused and trying to confirm their findings. processing…
