Theoretical Particle Physics

Theoretical work that relates to predicting or interpreting the outcome of experiments

Extensions of the Standard Model of Electroweak Physics

  • motivation to understand - electroweak symmetry breaking, related to the generation of mass; structure of particle content
  • new ideas typically include extension of the fundamental interactions and of the matter particle content - Little Higgs, 3-3-1 models,..
  • model independent investigations of new physics
    • anomalous gauge boson couplings
  • identification of new physics and discrimination between models
    • extra gauge bosons
    • heavy neutral leptons
    • new heavy quarks
  • indirect contributions of new physics via contributions to loops
