Lattice Meets Experiment 2013: Beyond the Standard Model

Co-sponsored by USQCD


Lattice gauge theory, which is an active field of research at RBRC and BNL, provides a rigorous, numerical approach to the study of particle physics models in strongly-coupled regimes. In addition to the study of the strong nuclear force as described by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), lattice studies can play an important role in many areas of research into possible new physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), including:

  • Intersections between new physics and QCD, such as proton decay and electric dipole moments;
  • Cosmological physics, including the electroweak phase transition and dark matter detection;
  • New theoretical models, which can give rise to composite Higgs or composite dark matter sectors.

In all of these topic areas, there are rapid developments on both the theoretical and experimental sides, making regular workshops such as this important. The goal of the "Lattice Meets Experiment" workshop series is to bring together experimentalists, phenomenologist's, and lattice theorists, in order to stimulate discussion on the most interesting models and studies to pursue. This will be the third workshop in the "Lattice Meets Experiment: BSM" series, with the previous two having been held at Fermilab in 2011 and the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2012.

Special Evening Event

There will be a dinner (at a personal cost of $60) on Thursday, December 5 at Atlantis Marine World/Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center in Riverhead.

Atlantis Marine World

For those who indicated on their Registration Form that they would be attending the dinner, please note that the organizers must collect this cost from you (in cash) during the first day of the workshop.

It would be very helpful if you had the exact amount available, as it will be difficult to provide change. Upon payment, you will be provided with a receipt and directions to the event.
