Introduction

 

In this seminar we highlight and discuss in detail recent results from the Large Hadron Collider, CERN. A special focus is placed on particularly exciting measurements and searches for new physics with a high physics impact.
 

Topics

We are open to any topics you propose, so if there is a measurement you always wanted to understand better, please go ahead and suggest it! Other possible topics for talks that we consider particularly interesting at the moment are (in no particular order):

  1. Excess in the diphoton invariant mass spectrum at 750 GeV in 2015 (and why not in Run 1? And what happened in 2016?) by ATLAS and CMS
  2. Search for new resonances in diboson invariant mass spectrum by ATLAS
  3. Tuning the next generation of MC generators using Z+jets events by ATLAS
  4. Excess in the inclusive jets + MET search at large effective masses and jet multiplicities by ATLAS
  5. Measurement of Hbb coupling in Zh and Vh at ATLAS (both channels low)
  6. Direct measurement of the Yukawa coupling of the top quark using ttH events (ATLAS and CMS, all 3 channels high)
  7. Indirect measurement of the Yukawa coupling of the top quark from a global fit
  8. Excess in search for Bs -> µµ decays by LHCb
  9. Excesses in Bs -> K*µµ, Bs -> phi µµ measurements (and global fit in effective field theory) by LHCb
  10. Lepton universality violation in B→D(*)+tau/B→D(*)+µ by LHCb, BaBar, and Belle
  11. Lepton universality violation in B→K+e/B→K+µ by LHCb
  12. Discovery of the pentaquark by LHCb
  13. Vub : Lambdab -> p mu nu
  14. CKM angle gamma: B± -> D0K±

Formalia

The seminar takes place on Mondays 16:15 in the Golden Box of the Physikalisches Institut (note the changed time and location!). The talk dates will be posted here when finalised. Registration through Übungsgruppenverwaltung.

Requirements

  • Independent literature research of the topic, in particular related publications. The talk supervisor gives a central publication as a starting point. Please contact him on time.
  • Logical outline and preparation of the talk
  • Dry-run talk with supervisor
  • 45 min talk (maximum), 15 min discussion
  • 6 ECTS credit points

Course of seminar:

  • 17. October 2016: First seminar meeting, organisatorial issues, choice of topics (if not yet happened), choice of talk dates
  • At the latest in week (n-3): discuss logical outline and a concept sketch of the talk with the supervisor. There is a possibility to discuss important physics question, for which we reserve about 1/2h
  • At the latest in week (n-1): dry run talk with the supervisor
  • After your talk: paper-like (with title, abstract, references etc) summary write-up of the topic, maximum 10 pages
