Boosted Higgs and the Effective Field Theory
Time: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Nick Smith, Fermilab
Abstract: Recent developments in jet substructure allow novel measurements of Higgs boson production at high transverse momentum. I will discuss these measurements, done in CMS, and how they can be effective indirect probes of new physics through the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) formalism. I will then present prospects for global combinations within SMEFT, and the computational tools being developed to enable them.
