Minicurso V: Theory and Phenomenology of the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Prospects for New Physics
18 February, 2019 @ 10:45 - 12:15
Professor: Dr. Roman Sergeevich Pasechnik
Resumo: Recently, a historically unique era of particle physics and cosmology has begun with the launch of operations of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the largest experiment ever, as well as many large- and small-scale neutrino physics, DM, cosmic-ray and gravitational-wave astrophysics experiments. In the beginning of the LHC era, the Standard Model has appeared to be the most successful theory of the subatomic world proven to work impressively well in interpreting all the experimental data collected at particle colliders so far. However, it appears to be incomplete as does not naturally incorporate a neutrino mass generation and oscillations mechanism, does not provide neither suitable Dark Matter candidates nor any explanation of mass and mixing hierarchies as well as the baryon asymmetry in the Universe. In these lectures, I overview the theoretical foundations and phenomenological implementations of the Standard Model and its simplest extensions, and discuss prospects and current expectation for New Physics at particle colliders and in astroparticle physics measurements.
