Special Seminar - Itay Yavin - "Very Weak Interactions"

Tue, Feb 1, 2011, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
PCTS Seminar Room
Abstract: What lies beyond the Standard Model of particle physics? Are there very weakly interacting forms of matter and forces waiting to be discovered? In this talk I will describe some of the efforts underway to detect very weakly interacting particles, from dark matter to new forces. I will discuss recent observations and their theoretical significance as well as the connection to other experimental results. I will conclude with a short summary of the different frontiers and their interrelations.
