Description

The CDF II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider has been running steadily for many years accumulating large datasets which allow to probe many facets of the Standard Model and its possible extensions over a wide range of processes. This contribution presents an overview of the CDF physics program focusing on the most recent results as of April 2010. The CDF II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider has been steadily acquiring data since the beginning of 2002. The large accumulated datasets allow CDF to pursue a very rich and broad physics program, which is probing many facets of the ... continued below

Description

The CDF II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider has been running steadily for many years accumulating large datasets which allow to probe many facets of the Standard Model and its possible extensions over a wide range of processes. This contribution presents an overview of the CDF physics program focusing on the most recent results as of April 2010. The CDF II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider has been steadily acquiring data since the beginning of 2002. The large accumulated datasets allow CDF to pursue a very rich and broad physics program, which is probing many facets of the Standard Model (SM) and its possible extensions over a wide range of processes, whose cross sections span over 10 orders of magnitude, from the tens of millibarns of the total p {bar p} cross section to the fraction of a picobarn expected for the production of the SM Higgs boson. The CDF investigation of the fundamental constituents of matter is organized on the basis of the phenomena and the sector of the Standard Model which are being explored: the study of the strong interactions between the quarks and gluons in the colliding nucleons, the b- and c-quark flavor physics, the properties of the top quark and the electroweak gauge bosons, the electroweak symmetry breaking and the Higgs boson, the searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. Following this baseline the contribution will review the CDF physics program focusing on the most recent results as of April 2010: Sec. 2 briefly describes the experimental apparatus, the Tevatron collider and the CDF detector, in the subsequent Sections the results are presented.
