HEP Lectureship Candidate Seminar, all members of the department are encouraged to attend

Thanks to new experimental capabilities, including collider and cosmological observations, many longstanding paradigms and open problems in particle physics can nowadays be tested directly. The prominent example is the recent discovery of a Higgs boson, which is so new, the particle’s positive identification is still pending. Massive effort is well underway to test for the existence of new physics that could eventually explain the other outstanding problem: Dark Matter, and much more.

Based on the results accumulated during the last several years, it seems increasingly likely that the future exploratory power of the LHC will critically depend on the precision with which collider measurements are modeled. In this talk I’ll present the recent breakthroughs in precision phenomenology and demonstrate with specific examples their power in both Standard Model and Beyond the Standard Model applications. In conclusion, I’ll briefly touch upon our expectations about the future of particle physics.
