Summary:
Chronology of Particle Physics Discoveries is a site devoted to the contents of the book, Particle Physics -- One Hundred Years Of Discoveries , published by the Particle Data Group of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This group "...review[s] particle physics and related areas of astrophysics and compile[s]...data on particle properties. [They then]...distribut[e]...[their] products to 30,000 teachers, physicists, and others...." The site is structured around a timeline, visible upon access. Users need only to select a given year to display the contents.
After choosing a starting point within the timeline, the user will find that matching information begins at the selected year and progresses through the year's ongoing decade. Records reflect major discoveries, experiments, research, and theories. Each year's entries feature descriptions of discoveries and advancements in particle physics. Some years have several items noted, but for each calendar year, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics is named, and details of his/her research are given. Users can select a particular year of interest to view its listings or browse through the entire directory.
Within a given year's entries, users will find an access point to the discovery's description via its year, displayed in the first column. Selecting this number then opens the desired record. Here, users will see the event, as it was written about in its original form of publication. Present in the record are: the title of the article (from original publication); the abstract (from original publication); a list of references for this record's information (from within the original publication, preprints, translations, and related articles); the full title of this discovery, as represented within the Particle Physics-- One Hundred years of Discoveries book; and related institutions of study and their respective locations.
