[HET seminar] Standard Model Effective Field Theory - Indirect constraints on new fundamental physics

by Anke Biekoetter (Durham University )




We have plenty of reasons to believe that there is physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Currently, however, new fundamental physics is doing a very good job at hiding from us at high-energy experiments like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The reason for this could be that potential new particles are too heavy to be directly detected at present experiments. In this talk, we will use effective field theory to describe the effects of heavy new fundamental physics at lower energy scales. Specifically, we will investigate what we can learn about new physics through a global analysis of LHC data.
