Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: The electroweak sector of the Standard Model and precision calculations for the LHC

Presented by Marek Schoenherr, Durham University

14 November 2019 14:00 in OC218

The LHC has completed its second run at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV and prepares for the upcoming Run-3, with the High-Luminosity upgrade on the horizon. While the search for new physics continues in the soon-to-be-accessible high-energy regime, precision measurements of inclusive observables are likewise on the experiments physics programme. In this presentation I will review the role and properties of the electroweak half of the Standard Model and detail how its precise understanding is crucial to the success of both objectives in these seemingly so very dissimilar regimes.
