The mission ofthe High Energy Physics (HEP) program is to understand how the universe works
at its most fundamental level, which is done by discovering the elementary constituents of matter
and energy, probing the interactions between them, and exploring the basic nature of space and
The HEP program focuses on three scientific frontiers:
• The Energy Frontier, where powerful accelerators are used to create new particles, reveal 2
theirinteractions, and investigate fundamental forces;
• The Intensity Frontier, where intense particle beams and highly sensitive detectors are used
to pursue alternate pathways to investigate fundamental forces and particle interactions by
studying events that occurrarely in nature, and to provide precision measurements of these
phenomena; and
• TheCosmic Frontier, where non-accelerator-based experiments observe the cosmos and
detect cosmic particles, making measurements of natural phenomena that can provide
information about the nature of dark matter, dark energy, and otherfundamental properties of
the Universe that impact our understanding of matter and energy.
Together, these three interrelated and complementary discovery frontiers offerthe opportunity to
answersome ofthe most basic questions about the world around us. Also integral to the mission
of HEP are three cross-cutting research areas that enable new scientific opportunities by
developing the necessary tools and methods for discoveries:
• Theoretical Particle Physics, where the vision and mathematical framework for
understanding and extending the knowledge of particles, forces, space-time, and the universe
