Welcome!

CHRIS QUIGG, Distinguished Scientist Emeritus at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, is an American theoretical physicist, author, and lecturer. Here you will find information about Gauge Theories of the Strong, Weak, and Electromagnetic Interactions, with supporting material, and links to presentations for general audiences.

I spoke about the past, present, and future of particle physics for the Bookends feature of Physics Today Online.

Slides from “Perspectives and Questions: Meditations on the Future of Particle Physics,” my May 2019 University of Chicago High-Energy Physics Seminar, are here. My essay, “Dream Machines,” features 40+1 open questions for particle physics.

I joined in celebrating the life and career of Leon Lederman at the American Physical Society April 2019 Meeting in Denver.  Slides from my talk, “In Leon’s company, it seemed that anything might be possible,” are at DOI.

Colloquium: A Century of Noether’s Theorem” is based on a talk I gave at Fermilab in August 2018.
