A New Era of Symmetries in the Hadronic Interaction

The search for a weak component of the nuclear force began in 1957, the year parity violation was first predicted. While it has been observed in compound nuclei with large magnifications, a systematic characterization of the Hadronic Weak Interaction has been unfeasible for over half a centry. New experimental facilities and technology have rejuvenated our efforts to map out this final frontier of the Standard Model, and to search for new physics.

Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:15 PM
