The standard model of particle physics is a theoretical framework that encapsulates almost all elementary particle data to date. The full Lagrangian takes pages. In your comment: @Danu I understand the 6/7 Wightman axioms but fail to capture how does the concepts of fundamnetal particles, quarks-leptons, or bosons mediating forces etc. come from those. ...

Top Quark, with a rest mass of approximately $\ 173.07 \space GeV/c^2$ .
What comes out of those collisions can tell us a lot about what started out. The particles coming out weren't there to being with, they were produced by the violent collisions. What comes out, as well as its energy, tells us information about the scattering cross sections. These cross sections get calculated from models with free parameters, and we use the ...
