Particle Physics Seminar

"Heavy bosons: a probe into the unknown"

Presented by Viviana Cavaliere, University of Illinois Champaign/Urbana

Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The large amount of high-energy proton-proton collision data at the LHC provides an unprecedented opportunity to search for new physics beyond the Standard Model at the TeV scale. The 2012 discovery of a 125 GeV Higgs boson opened a new door to understanding the universe, providing an exciting new tool to use in these searches, given it is now produced about once per second at the current collision rate. The talk will review recent ATLAS searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, focusing on the central role of processes with heavy bosons, including the Higgs, and the corresponding new possible signatures that range from spectacular new resonances to subtle changes in kinematic distributions.
