Record number of authors in research papers relating to Higgs Boson a.k.a. God Particle

Higgs Boson discovery has gotten a record number of authorsHiggs Boson, popularly called as “God Particle” is really an attractive particle and this has been shown by the number of authors in the two papers published recently in the journal “Physics Letters B”.

Higgs Boson was elusively observed about two months ago in July and now the research has been published with more than 5,000 researchers around the world as they are thought to contribute to the ground breaking discoveries related to the Higgs Boson by the CMS and ATLAS teams working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

These two papers are Combined search for the Standard Model Higgs boson using up to 4.9 fb1 of pp collision data at with the ATLAS detector at the LHC and Observation of a new boson at a mass of 125 GeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC. These papers are of about 30 pages in length each in which the combined author list takes up 19 pages of single-spaced text with about 6,000 names. These papers are found to set a record of the number of authors in any paper.

“These papers present the first observations of a new particle discovered by two big experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson which has spanned many decades and has involved many experiments,” CMS spokesperson Joe Incandela said in a CERN release.

“The discovery reported in these papers is a momentous step forward in fundamental knowledge,” ATLAS spokesperson Fabiola Gianotti said. “It is the culmination of more than 20 years of effort of the worldwide high-energy physics community to build and operate instruments of unprecedented technology, complexity and performance: the LHC accelerator and related experiments.”
