Event Details

Rutherford and Bohr discovered the nuclear atom 100 years ago. Roughly 50 years ago a theory of this basic structure of matter was inspired by the work of Peter Higgs and others. In July this year the discovery of what is probably Higgs's boson, and the experimental proof of the theory, was announced and speculations about Nobel prizes mushroomed.

The Economist said of Professor Close's book, The Infinity Puzzle (OUP,2012): "The Nobel Committee would be well advised to read Mr Close’s book before making their decision."  This pedagogic talk reviews the ideas and the history, and assesses how the credits should be shared. As for recommendations to the committee: these might not be what you expect.
