The LHC search for the physics behind the Standard Model
Yevgeny Kats, BGU
I will start with an overview of some of the most important open questions in particle physics. Some of these issues require, and other strongly suggest, the existence of yet-unknown particles and fields in nature. I will argue that the Standard Model is just an effective partial description of a more fundamental theory that stands behind it and is yet to be discovered. I will then focus on the puzzle of the electroweak-Planck hierarchy, where hints about the underlying mechanism are likely to be within the reach of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. In the last part of the talk, I will describe my recent and ongoing theoretical work on interpreting LHC results and proposing new search directions for the physics behind the electroweak-Planck hierarchy and other new phenomena that may be accessible at the LHC. Refreshments are served at 15:15.
