Blogs You Should Read February 8, 2016Posted by dorigo in physics.
As you can easily verify by checking the post date on the articles in this column, this blog is nearly inactive. It used to be the main site of my blogging activities from 2006 to 2009. In april that year I transfered my activities to www.science20.com , where I have been blogging since then. You can visit that site to keep informed of what is going on in the field of High-Energy Physics – you know, subatomic particles, fundamental physics, the Large Hadron Collider, and the like. All for laypersons, with some occasional plunges into more technical discussions.
Another blog I am contributing to since December 2015 is the one at amva4newphysics.wordpress.com, which is a collaborative column maintained by the participants to the AMVA4NewPhysics network, a Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission under the “Horizon 2020” program. The network members are 15 universities, research institutes, and industries united by the common goal of providing an innovative training structure for PhD students who want to learn cutting-edge statistical learning tools while doing research in particle physics with the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC collider. The web page of the network is here. In the network blog you will find information on advanced classification and regression algorithms applied to particle physics problems, as well as discussions on science topics of the liking of the students enrolled in the network, who are the main contributors to the column.
Finally, if you can read Greek, there is another blog that I started five years ago, where I wrote a few posts about particle physics in that language. The blog has been maintained by a collaborator for a few more years, but I think the posting rate has significantly decreased recently. I will make an effort to keep that endeavour going, but it looks harder.
As for this blog, it will remain active with very scarce posting rate. As this site contains a lot of good reading material, much of it still valuable and not outdated, I think there is value in keeping it alive.
