- Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
- Strongly-Interacting Supersymmetry: Theoretical Motivations and Phenomenology
- Time: 12:30 pm
- Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
- Speaker: Lauren Pearce, UCLA
- Abstract: Current evidence from the LHC has pushed us to consider novel implementations of supersymmetry. One possibility is strongly-interacting supersymmetry, in which the trilinear couplings between the Higgs bosons and squarks are large; in such models, the squarks form bound states. In this talk, I will discuss theoretical motivations for such models (for example, that supersymmetry breaking can trigger electroweak symmetry breaking) and phenomenological concerns, including the possibility of electroweak baryogenesis and signals for ongoing LHC searches.
- Physics Department Colloquium
- Holiday Office Party
- Holiday Colloquium
- Time: 4:30 pm
- Place: 2103 Chamberlin Hall
- Speaker: 3rd Year Graduate Students, UW Madison
- Abstract: The third year class invites you to come and enjoy a catered, afternoon luncheon celebrating the holiday season. There will be fine Italian delicacies including fancy charcuterie, cave-aged cheeses, and local organic vegetables such as vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes. Beverages include the Midwest's world renowned heritage adult beverages and various artisanal carbonated liquids. Please enjoy these Yuletide festivities with a measure of cheer known only once a year in Chamberlin hall. Entertainment will be provided by the third year class.
Beer and Pizza will begin at 4:00 pm
Colloquium will begin at 4:30 pm
Participants must have a wristband to attend. Wristbands will be distributed Friday afternoon.
- Host: Department of Physics
