Abstract

Scattering is of crucial importance for investigating the structure of matter. It is no coincidence that the perhaps most expensive experiment on earth is the Large Hadron Collider (CERN), where the analysis of high-energy scattering processes has given information about the Higgs particle, whose existence was until 2012 only postulated.
