Hundred years of Fundamental Physics and a Crisis

G Rajasekaran


One hundred years of Fundamental Physics have culminated
in a theory called Standard Model of High Energy Physics.
This theory is now known to be the basis of almost
ALL OF KNOWN PHYSICS except gravity. Although the discovery
of the Higgs Boson in 2012 has established this theory,
gravitational force has been left out. The energy
scale of quantum gravity is 16 orders of magnitude
higher than the presently accessible TeV energies.
This is a Crisis in Fundamental Physics that can be met
only by the discovery of new principles of acceleration.
The talk will highlight this theme and is addressed to
the general audience of IMSc (especially students) and
NOT to the HEP experts.
