**What's (the) Matter?, A Show on Elementary Particle Physics**

by Herbi K. Dreiner, et al.

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 113

**Description**:

We present the screenplay of a physics show on particle physics, by the Physikshow of Bonn University. The show is addressed at non-physicists aged 14+ and communicates basic concepts of elementary particle physics including the discovery of the Higgs boson in an entertaining fashion.
