Glenn Shafer: Testing by Betting and the Randomness of Risk

1:00pm, ZOOM (How to join? Ask georgios.karagiannis@durham.ac.uk)

Before it was a theory of probability, mathematical probability was a theory of betting. Before they were sequences of random variables, martingales were strategies for betting. By looking at the matter this way once more, we gain insights into statistical testing and the behavior of entrepreneurs. This talk with touch on the May 2019 book Game-Theoretic Foundations for Probability and Finance (by Glenn Shafer and Vladimir Vovk, Wiley) and on recent working papers at www.probabilityandfinance.com .

Parisa Gregg: Constraining SMEFT operators with associated h𝛾 production in Weak Boson Fusion

3:00pm, Zoom

As the search for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) continues, the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) has become a useful tool to constrain deviations from the SM in a model-independent way. In this talk, we consider the associated production of a Higgs boson and a photon in weak boson fusion (WBF), with the Higgs boson decaying to a pair of bottom quarks. I will present a cut-based analysis and multivariate techniques to determine the sensitivity of this process to the bottom-Yukawa coupling in the SM and to possible CP-violation mediated by dimension-6 operators in the SMEFT.
