As particle physics enters the 21st century, a host of discoveries both inside and outside the field point to new physics that is not contained in the standard model. We describe the discoveries and survey the scientific opportunities, following the themes of ultimate unification, hidden dimensions, and cosmic connections.


Jonathan Bagger is Krieger-Eisenhower Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University. He received his A.B. from Dartmouth College in 1977. After a year at Cambridge as a Churchill Scholar, he continued his graduate study at Princeton. He received his Ph.D. in 1983 and took a postdoctoral research position at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. From 1986-1989 he was an Associate Professor at Harvard.

Bagger has twice been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He held a Sloan Foundation Fellowship and an NSF Presidential Young Investigator award. He has served on three HEPAP subpanels, several NSF advisory panels, the SLAC Scientific Policy Committee, the Executive Board of the APS, and as Chair of the Division of Particles and Fields of the APS. Bagger is presently a member of the NRC Board on Physics and Astronomy and the Fermilab Board of Overseers. He is also on the Editorial Boards of the Johns Hopkins University Press, as well as Physics Reports, the Physical Review and the Journal of High Energy Physics. He is also a Fellow of the APS.
