Hidden Valley searches at the LHCb
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (SPECIAL LOCATION AND DATE)
Speaker: Yue Zhao, University of Michigan
Abstract: Dark shower is a generic feature of the Hidden Valley (HV) models. It has interesting implications on collider studies on Neutral Naturalness models. Bound states in the hidden sector are produced with a high multiplicity, low masses, and long lifetimes. A collider search of such signals requires good vertex resolution, low energy threshold, as well as a good particle id to veto the background. We show that the LHCb provides an ideal environment to study HV models. Further, we compare the sensitivities at the LHCb with those at the ATLAS/CMS.

Next steps in new physics searches, LHC and beyond.
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: Liantao Wang, University of Chicago
Abstract: Starting from the most recent LHC results reported in Moriond 2017, I will give my perspective the status of new physics searches and discuss the strategies for the future.
