Physics & Astronomy Colloquium at CSU Long Beach
Is the Higgs
Elementary or Composite?
February 27, 2017
Refreshments at 10:45am
The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider completed the experimental search for the Standard Model of particle physics. There are however still open problems with the Standard Model which did not get resolved by the discovery itself. One of these, the fine tuning problem or naturalness problem, may be resolved if the Higgs boson is a composite particle and not elementary. In the talk I will review recent results from non-perturbative lattice simulations of a particular beyond Standard Model theory which does feature a light composite Higgs boson.
All Physics students & faculty should attend!
