PPE Research Group Main Page - Links

The experimental particle physics group at the University of Glasgow is studying the fundamental constituents of matter, and their interactions. Our activities are carried out in collaboration with international laboratories such as CERN, where we participate in experimental collaborations and analyse large datasets in search of new phenomena. To further these studies the group is developing future detector technologies for experimentation, and computer grids for analysis of data:
