I recently watched a program on pentaquarks found in the LHC (potentially). They referenced a catalog of all particles.

What is this catalog of particles they are referencing?

The Particle Data Group maintains a lot of high-energy physics data, including particle data. They’ve periodically published it in book and booklet form.

  • $\begingroup$ This is interesting... But it is not the reference I was looking for. The one I was trying to find, may have been published by CERN. Thanks though. This will help. $\endgroup$ – Rick Apr 8 '18 at 13:32
  • $\begingroup$ In that case, they’re almost certainly talking about the PDG work and their Particle Data Tables and Review of Particle Physics. library.cern/PDG_publications/review_particle_physics. There’s no other CERN-based comprehensive effort. $\endgroup$ – Bob Jacobsen Apr 8 '18 at 14:17
  • $\begingroup$ This looks like the document they were referencing. Thank you $\endgroup$ – Rick Apr 8 '18 at 14:34
