Physics Colloquium

"Low-energy Precision Physics and the Role of Lattice QCD"

Presented by Harmut Wittig, University of Mainz

Tuesday, November 15, 2016, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The particle content of the Standard Model has been completely
established following the discovery of the Higgs boson. While the
Standard Model describes all known phenomena in accelerator-based
experiments, many important questions are left unanswered. In this
talk I describe several attempts to detect signals for physics beyond
the Standard Model using precision experiments at low
energies. Special attention is given to the anomalous magnetic moment
of the muon and the role of lattice QCD in quantifying the hadronic
uncertainties in its theoretical prediction.
