Event Details

The Tevatron proton-antiproton collider at Fermilab, near Chicago, was shut down on September 30, 2011, after more than 20 years of world leading research in particle physics. The plan of the two Tevatron experiments, CDF and D0, after the shutdown was to complete their physics programs using their full data samples, and to preserve the data and analysis knowledge acquired in 10 years of operations at 2 TeV collision energy. This seminar will review the most important physics results from the CDF experiment in the time elapsed since the Tevatron shutdown, the accomplishments of the data preservation project, and highlight the CDF and Tevatron legacy. The physics review will cover all areas of interest, from Higgs boson and top quark physics to high precision electroweak and heavy flavor measurements.
