Event Details

Searching for new physics in dijets at hadron colliders is a classic well-motivated strategy. However, as the LHC settles into a long period of data-taking at 13 TeV, improvements to the traditional search program are incremental. I will present new techniques to greatly extend the dijet search phase space to regions unexplored since the 1980s. I will also detail how such searches have a connection to Higgs properties measurements and dark matter searches at the LHC. Finally, I will talk more generally about extending searches for light thermal dark matter to the MeV-GeV range and new experimental approaches such as the proposed LDMX (Light Dark Matter eXperiment).
