The Problem of Mass: The Higgs and Beyond
Date: Tuesday, May 22nd
Time: 11:30 am
Place: 4274 Chamberlin hall
Speaker: Laura Dodd, UW-Madison
Abstract: The talk will focus on the provision of mass for the charged fermions, i.e., the Yukawa couplings in the Standard Model. In particular, the recent 5-sigma CMS measurement of Higgs to ττ decays will be presented. Additionally, the talk will cover potential physics beyond the Standard Model using the Higgs boson to search for weakly interacting massive particle dark matter.
