Theorists love giant formulas (even more than coffee)

SLAC theorist Lance Dixon and collaborators have calculated the formula for the energy-energy correlation (EEC) with more precision than ever before. Formulas like the EEC tell researchers what exactly happens in particle collisions at enormous particle smashers like CERN's Large Hadron Collider, and they help us better understand nature's fundamental building blocks or even discover completely new phenomena.
