Behind very great results lies great computing
At the ATLAS experiment, masterful computing infrastructure is transforming raw data from the detector into particles for analysis, with a set direction, energy and type.
New ATLAS Results Presented at Quark Matter 2015
The Quark Matter 2015 conference has just concluded in Kobe, Japan. Over 700 physicists made the trip to discuss the latest developments in the field.
ATLAS Presents New Top Physics Results
This week, physicists from around the world are gathering at the Top 2015 workshop in Ischia, Italy to discuss the latest measurements of the top quark. As the heaviest known fundamental particle, the top quark plays a special role in the search for "new physics". In results presented at Top 2015, the ATLAS collaboration combed through their high-precision Run 1 LHC data to see if the top quark is behaving as predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics.
