HET Lunch Seminar
"Improving Collider Searches with Effective Field Theory"
Presented by Nicholas Dunn, UC Berkeley
Friday, December 2, 2011, 12:00 pm — Building 510 / Room 2-160
Recent results from the LHC suggest that new physics will not be found in obvious search channels. One possibility is that any new physics will be found beneath a large QCD background. In this talk, I will discuss how effective field theory methods, specifically SCET, can be used to improve our understanding of backgrounds at the LHC. I will present new methods for both event generation using Monte Carlo and analytical techniques.
