Physics Seminar - Higgs Discovery: Implications for the Standard Model and Beyond

4:30 PM  - 5:30 PM
Thursday Nov 29, 2012
Room 150, Old Main

Dr. Brian Batell, Research Associate at Enrico Fermi Institute & Department of Physics, University of Chicago.

Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have discovered a new particle with properties consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson. In this talk I will review the discovery and discuss what it means for the Standard Model, our current theory of fundamental matter and forces, as well as theories that go beyond the Standard Model. I will focus especially on how precise measurements of the properties of the new Higgs-like particle, such as its couplings to other known particles, can guide us in searches for new physics at the LHC.

Join us for refreshments at 4 PM.
