News from the CDF and PAMELA experiments
[Thanks to Peter Woit]
Since I am not expert in particle/astroparticle high energy physics, I will not comment on those results, but I admit to find them quite interesting, so I will link them here for my record. You are encouraged to read Woit‘s and Dorigo‘s (CDF collaborator) posts on the first news and the Resonaances blog post on the second one. The technical papers are linked below:
Update: Discussions also going on here.
Update: See a new post over at Cosmic Variance by John Conway, another CDF collaborator.
Update: Well-known physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed clarifies the genesis of and motivation for his recent papers (published a few weeks before the CDF result) # ## over at Dorigo’s blog. His response denies previous suggestions that he and his collaborators had access to CDF results before their publication. Dorigo writes a new post on this here.
Update: A new post by Woit here.
Final word: I will no longer add further updates. You have plenty of places over the blogosphere to follow this. I must get back to work.
