Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: Challenging the Standard Model of elementary particle physics with experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider
23 May 2017 16:00 in CLC202
The Standard Model of elementary particle physics has proven to be
remarkably durable. Starting with a theoretical structure established
in the early 1960’s, the SM has expanded to accommodate the discovery
of new particle generations and symmetry violations. The missing
particle content, the Higgs boson, was finally discovered by the ATLAS
and CMS experiments in 2012. Since then experiments at the CERN Large
Hadron Collider have collected data that have been used to test SM
prediction with exquisite precision. Searches for non-SM particles now
extend into the multi-TeV mass range and measurements have probed
distant scales down to 10−4 fermi.
A review will be made of the SM’s development and recent experimental
tests using data collected with LHC operation at a proton-proton
center of mass energy of 13 TeV.
