Re: El Reg LHCb story

1993 article on B+ production in LEP: http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/257181/ payroll /P00019894.pdf Also, the recent LHCb article refers to "known B+ mass of 5.32 GeV," meaning the observed mass from prior experiments. That was a good research article on the lifespan of beauty particles. This is the ...

Re: W boson polarization

Polarisation of light or phonons refers to the orientation of the vibrations with respect to the direction of travel. W boson polarisation appears to be analogous. It appears that there was some work done on this at LEP, as the polarisation of W pairs produced in collisions varies depending on ener...

Another article from Symmetry Magazine on decoding event displays. May be a repeat but has a lot of info grouped together in one post. LHC Decoded. http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/cms/?pid= 4396508 Symmetry Mag is a perfect place for a beginner like me to start in trying to decipher some of the way...
