Mariarosaria D'Alfonso (CERN) "New Physics at LHC: Energy and Precision Frontiers"

March 1, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The evidence for the existence of dark matter in the universe is overwhelming; yet its exact nature, its mass(es) and coupling constants, are completely unknown. If kinematically accessible at colliders, these particles are expected to be produced directly or in the cascade of other new hypothetical particles. At the same time, the global fit to electroweak precision data impressively demonstrates the predictive power of Standard Model. Increasing the theoretical and experimental precision on electroweak observables may reveal inconsistencies between measurements and predictions due to the presence of new particles in the loop corrections. I will discuss a discovery physics program to take the full advantage of the ability of the LHC to probe the energy and the precision frontiers. I will highlight how improved scientific instruments with new possibilities will enable these searches.
