High-Energy Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Parity violation constraints on top physics"

Presented by Sean Tulin, Michigan Center for Theoretical Physics

Wednesday, April 4, 2012, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

An excess top forward-backward asymmetry has been measured by the CDF and D0 collaborations, motivating many new physics theories beyond the Standard Model and searches for top-related anomalies at the LHC. I discuss the implications of low-energy precision tests of parity violation (PV) on these new physics models, and in fact many of the most promising scenarios are actually ruled out by current PV constraints.
