Physics Colloquium

"A Composite Universe"

Presented by Francesco Sannino, CP3-Or

Tuesday, November 15, 2011, 3:30 pm — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

The bulk of the visible component of the universe known as bright matter is made by protons and neutrons. These particles are not elementary but constituted by quarks and gluons. It is therefore natural to ask if also the missing ingredients needed for a more complete understanding of particle physics and cosmology, i.e. the Higgs particle, dark matter and even inflation are made by some more fundamental matter. I will present the state-of-the-art of constructing models of composite Higgs, dark matter and inflation.
