- Unlocking the mysteries of the Universe with the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider
- Time: 3:30 pm
- Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
- Speaker: Tulika Bose, Boston University
- Abstract: The discovery of the Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012 was a ground-breaking event in particle physics history. The LHC has restarted recently at an unprecedented center of mass energy of about 13 TeV and the data collected by the CMS experiment is expected to help fully understand the nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and potentially discover new physics. In this talk, I will review recent results from the CMS experiment with special focus on searches for physics beyond the Standard Model.
