Meet the author - Chris Quigg about 'Grace in All Simplicity'


52/1-052 at CERN

Chris Quigg will present his new book in the CERN Library:
Grace in All Simplicity: Beauty, Truth, and Wonders on the Path to the Higgs Boson and New Laws of Nature / Robert N. Cahn, Chris Quigg. Pegasus, 2024.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and signing sessions. The book is available from the CERN Library & Bookshop
About the book (from publisher):
'An enthralling and accessible account of humanity’s quest to make sense of our physical world, told through interwoven tales of inspiration, tragedy, and triumph.'
About the author (from 
'CHRIS QUIGG, Distinguished Scientist Emeritus at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, is an American theoretical physicist, author, and lecturer.'
His 'research has ranged over many topics in particle physics, from electroweak symmetry breaking and supercollider physics to heavy quarks and the strong interaction among them to ultrahigh-energy neutrino interactions.' Quigg has 'devoted much energy to helping to define the future of particle physics—and the new accelerators that will take us there.
Much of his current effort is linked with the experimental program of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, with special attention to the problem of electroweak symmetry breaking.'
