Event Details

What’s next for the LHC? We traditionally look for new physics at colliders by trying to separate signals from Standard Model backgrounds. This approach has led to striking constraints from the LHC, but no discovery of new physics beyond the Standard Model. In this talk I will highlight an alternate approach. Precision measurements of Standard Model processes can be used, in some cases, to discover subtle effects of new physics that is otherwise hidden from traditional searches. I will highlight examples where precise measurements of top quark, lepton, and jet production can be used to look for a variety of new physics.
