HET Seminar

"New physics in rare decays"

Presented by Julian Heeck, UC Irvine

Monday, January 27, 2020, 2:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Despite its many successes, the Standard Model of particle physics cannot be the final description of nature at the most fundamental level. Additional elementary particles and interactions are an absolute necessity but have so far evaded our experimental efforts. I will highlight the importance of searches for processes that are forbidden within the Standard Model, as these make for clean signatures of new physics. Important examples are searches for lepton flavor violation and baryon number violation, which will be tested to unprecedented levels in upcoming experiments.
