Physics and Astronomy Colloquium Series
Thursday, April 17, 2014
Dr. Christopher Marino
University of Victoria
Abstract: The Standard Model of particle physics has been very successful in explaining observable data, including the recent discovery of the Higgs boson. However, outstanding questions motivate continuing to search for new physics. The ATLAS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider provides an excellent environment to look for new particles including those predicted by Supersymmetry and more Exotic particles like magnetic monopoles. This talk will describe the motivation, tools, and techniques for these types of searches for new physics. It will also take a look forward to how upgrades to the LHC and ATLAS will provide even more exciting opportunities for discovery in the years to come.
The Physics and Astronomy Colloquium Series is open to all members of the university. Unless otherwise noted, talks are held on Thursday afternoons at 4:00-5:20 in Mendocino 1015. Schedule is regularly updated as dates, titles, and abstracts are received. Please check back often. To receive updates about the Colloquium Series, please join our Events Mailing List.
