High Energy Experiment Seminar

HEP Seminar-Caterina Vernieri- Stanford- A "Cool" Route to Unveil the Higgs Boson’s Secrets

Thu, Jun 16, 2022, 2:00 pm

The Higgs boson was discovered in 2012 by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the world’s most powerful particle collider, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland. This particle plays a unique role in fundamental physics. It gives all of the known elementary particles, including itself, their masses.

HEP Seminar- Luca Mastrolorenzo-CERN-"Unveiling the Higgs Boson's Charm with the CMS Experiment"

Thu, Apr 21, 2022, 2:00 pm

Probing the Yukawa couplings is paramount to understand the role played by the Higgs boson in the Standard Model. Ten years after the discovery of the Higgs boson, all the Yukawa couplings to the third generation of fermions have been measured.

HEP Seminar/ Cristian Peña/"Unlocking the CMS Experiment to Catch Long-lived Particles"

Mon, Apr 18, 2022, 2:00 pm

Enabling new long-lived particles (LLPs) searches at the LHC presents HEP research with unique opportunities. Introducing novel experimental techniques to identify and reconstruct LLPs will open up new possibilities for discoveries with striking signatures.

HEP-Dicke Candidate-Kiley Kennedy-Columbia-"Spotlight on Supersymmetry at the LHC: The First ATLAS Search for Displaced and Delayed Diphoton Resonances"

Tue, Nov 30, 2021, 3:30 pm

To date, LHC searches have provided no definitive evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). What if we’re looking in the wrong place? Long-lived particles (LLPs) arise from a variety of well-motivated BSM theories.

High Energy Physics Seminar- Xin Qian-BNL-"Search for an Anomalous Excess in Neutrino-Induced Interactions in the MicroBooNE Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber"

Thu, Nov 11, 2021, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm

   The MicroBooNE experiment was designed primarily to explore the nature of the previously observed low-energy excess in electron neutrino candidates in the MiniBooNE experiment located in the Booster Neutrino Beamline at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.

High Energy Experiment Seminar-Stephane Cooperstein UCSD-"First Evidence for Higgs Boson Decay to Muons"

Thu, Oct 15, 2020, 2:00 pm

Abstract: Probing the Higgs boson coupling to the muon is one of the last experimentally accessible frontiers in the direct measurement of Higgs boson couplings at the LHC.

HET Seminar | Po-Shen Hsin, Caltech | "Lorentz Symmetry Fractionalizations and Dualities in (2+1)d" | Bloomberg Lecture Hall

HET Seminar | Radu Roiban, Penn State | “Perspectives on the Generally-Relativistic Two-Body Problem from Double Copy & EFT”| Bloomberg Lecture Hall

Mon, Nov 25, 2019, 2:30 pm

While the flat space two-body problem is integrable, the generally-relativistic one is not starting at the next-to-leading order.

HET Seminar | Adam Levine, IAS | “On a Quantum Penrose Inequality” | Bloomberg Hall Physics Library

Wed, Nov 20, 2019, 1:45 pm

Description: Suggested reading:
Marc Mars, Present Status of the Penrose Inequality, arXiv:0906.5566

HET Seminar | Si Li, IAS; Tsinghua University | “Deforming Holomorphic Chern-Simons at Large N” | Bloomberg Lecture Hall

Fri, Nov 15, 2019, 1:45 pm

We describe the coupling of holomorphic Chern-Simons theory at large N with Kodaira-Spencer gravity. This gives a complete description of open-closed string field theory in the topological B-model. We explain an anomaly cancellation mechanism at all loops in perturbation theory in this model.

HET Seminar | Andrew Turner, MIT | "General F-theory Models with SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1) / Z_6 Symmetry” | Bloomberg Lecture Hall

Mon, Sep 30, 2019, 2:30 pm

We construct a general form for an F-theory Weierstrass model over any base giving a 6D or 4D supergravity theory with gauge group SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1) / Z_6 and associated generic matter. The concept of 'generic matter' can be rigorously defined in 6D supergravity and generalizes naturally to four dimensions for F-theory models.

Physics Group at IAS | Greg Moor, Rutgers University | “A brief review of some work on BPS states, wall-crossing, hyperkahler geometry, Hitchin systems, etc.” | Bloomberg Lecture Hall

Wed, Sep 18, 2019, 1:45 pm

This talk will give a brief overview focused on six papers written by D. Gaiotto, G. Moore, and A. Neitzke
loosely centered around the topics mentioned in the title. The papers are on the arXiv.

Background reading:  Some short reviews are:

HET Seminar | Amit Sever, CERN | "The Holographic Dual of Strongly γ-deformed N=4 SYM Theory" | Bloomberg Lecture Hall

Mon, Sep 16, 2019, 2:30 pm

We present a first-principles derivation of a weak-strong duality between the four-dimensional fishnet theory in the planar limit and a discretized string-like model living in AdS5. At strong coupling, the dual description becomes classical and we demonstrate explicitly the classical integrability of the model.

Thu, Jun 13, 2019, 2:00 pm

I shall present a series of frontier experiments searching for X rays coming from exotic atoms produced at the DAFNE collider of LNF-INFN (Italy) and from processes violating Quantum Mechanics’ predictions at the Italian Gran Sasso underground laboratory.

HEP Seminar-Luigi Marchese-Oxford-"Higgs Boson Width at the LHC"

Fri, Mar 29, 2019, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

In the Standard Model the Higgs boson is a very narrow resonance and therefore measuring its width is challenging.
