Right now Many results from the Tevatron (top, precision tests,…) Neutrino mass and mixing have been established Beautiful physics is coming from the SLAC and KEK B factories Charming physics is coming from CLEO Proton structure from HERA RHIC physics Lattice calculations have achieved impressive precision Cosmology and astrophysics have become extremely interesting, with experiments in space, on the ground, and underground The start of the LHC era
Possible Accelerator Developments Luminosity upgrade for the LHC, termed the SLHC, aiming at a luminosity up to 10^35 cm-2 s-1. Energy upgrade for the LHC, termed the DLHC Linear colliders form another very prominent class of opportunities, that would continue the exploration of the high-energy frontier initiated by the LHC (500-800 GeV). Another possible option is a neutrino facility, which might consist of a super beam and/or beta beam or a neutrino factory leading eventually to muon colliders (Information provided by neutrino oscillation experiments). Multi-TeV e+e− collider CLIC.
Possible LHC Outcomes (a) New physics beyond the Standard Model; or (b) A Standard-Model-like Higgs and no physics beyond the Standard Model.
Astroparticles Quantum gravity. Dark matter and dark energy (95% of Universe beyond SM: 70% DE, 25% DM) Gravitational waves. Cosmic rays: observation of the GZK cutoff Neutrino astronomy Amanda, Antares,… Baryon asymmetry of the Universe (leptogenesis,…) Gamma ray bursts Vacuum birefrigence (axions,…)
Strings String theory is a consistent theory of quantum gravity. String theory incorporates the standard model. String theory has not explained yet either the big-bang singularity, or the particular structure of the standard model.
