Abstract

Since people have first observed their surroundings, they have been trying to grasp the inner structures that drive the world around them. Mankind has developed complex theories that describe and predict the universe—from the macroscopic theories of galaxy cluster formations to the microscopic theory of particle physics. One of the most successful results of this cross-generational effort is the Standard Model of particle physics, which describes the matter and its interactions through forces discovered so far.
