Nuclear and Particle Physics Colloquium

"Defeating the QCD: Searching For High Multiplicity Signals of New Physics"



The past three years of searches for new physics at the LHC has produced wide ranging results that have transformed our knowledge of the weak scale. No search has yet produced definitive signals for physics beyond the Standard Model. This talk will discuss new methods that can be used to expand the search for new physics into regimes that had previously been dominated by QCD.


Refreshments served at 3:45 PM

Lunchtime Seminar

12:30 PM


William Barletta and Markus Klute, MIT

"Informal Seminar and Open Discussion: Circular machines on the Energy Frontier"


The Director of the Office of Science has asked each of his scientific advisory panels to evaluate possibilities for future facilities.  A few of us have been asked to provide input to the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel regarding circular e+e- machines and very large proton colliders.  We will show some background material, and open the floor for discussion of the questions being asked by the DOE.
