Physics Department Colloquium
Future Colliders: The Higgs and Beyond
Date: Friday, October 7th
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Patrick Meade, SUNY-Stony Brook
Abstract: I will discuss the current status of LHC measurements and physics prospects at potential future colliders based on electrons, protons and the resurgent idea of a muon collider. I will emphasize how many of the unanswered questions about the Standard Model of particle physics are connected to measuring properties of the Higgs with higher precision. In particular I will point out how improving quantitative precision in certain measurements can lead to qualitative changes about our understanding of the universe. I will primarily focus on a few examples from flavor physics and cosmology in making this case. Additionally I will show some of the possibilities that high energy colliders offer for physics discovery beyond the Higgs.
