WP2 meeting: introduction to effective field theory

On November 22 we held a meeting at UCL to introduce the PhD and postdoctoral scientists recently joining the project to the standard model effective field theory. As many as 26 participants attended ! Excellent pedagogical talks were given, triggering lively discussions. We are gearing up to squeeze the most out of the LHC collision… Continue reading WP2 meeting: introduction to effective field theory

Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

Brussels, Monday 4 June 2018: An observation made by the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, published in the Physical Review Letters today, connects for the first time the two heaviest elementary particles of the Standard Model. Members of the CMS collaboration, including the Excellence of Science programme “be.h: The… Continue reading Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

PRESS RELEASE: Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

Brussels, Monday 4 June 2018: The first observation of the simultaneous production of a Higgs particle with a top quark-antiquark pair was published today in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters. This major milestone, first reported by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Collaboration in April 2018 and today also reported by the ATLAS Collaboration, unambiguously… Continue reading PRESS RELEASE: Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

NA62 presents first results on Very Rare Kaon Decays

On Sunday 11th of March, NA62 collaboration presented in Moriond the first results of the K+→π+νν analysis. This decay channel has a branching ratio in the SM of (8.4±1.0)×10-11 with solid theoretical predictions dominated by short distance contributions and with the hadronic uncertainties well under control. This channel is a golden one in the search of… Continue reading NA62 presents first results on Very Rare Kaon Decays
