The proton–antiproton Tevatron Collider at Fermilab began physics operation in 1988, and by its shutdown in 2011 it had delivered more than 10 fb−1 of data to the two general-purpose detectors CDF and D0. Thus far, these experiments have published more than 800 papers studying the character of the strong nuclear force, measuring the properties of hadrons containing heavy quarks, elucidating the nature of the electroweak force, discovering and measuring the properties of the top quark, seeking evidence for the Higgs boson, and searching for new phenomena beyond the standard paradigm of particle physics. We summarize the results that define the physics legacy of the Tevatron program.
