7 UT, Enschede, 05/06/'98Symmetries in Nature, Bob van Eijk7 Subatomic Physics Strong interactions:nuclei  gluons Electromagnetism:electrons  photons Weak interactions:radioactivity  W +, W -, Z 0 Gravitation:galaxies  graviton ‘The study of forces and interactions between particles’ Glashow, Weinberg and Salam: ‘The Standard Model of fundamental particles and interactions’ One single theoretical model (Quantum Field Theory) that describes strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions

8 UT, Enschede, 05/06/'98Symmetries in Nature, Bob van Eijk8 Grand Unification ‘Are we able to find a direct relation between our macroscopic and microscopic world ?’ ‘Big Bang Theory’ ‘Elementary particles’ ‘Are we able to include gravity ?’ Or: ‘Can we quantise space-time ?’ Unification of forces and interactions: Search for a ‘Super Symmetry’

9 UT, Enschede, 05/06/'98Symmetries in Nature, Bob van Eijk9 The ‘Big Bang’ or a possible evolution of the universe
