Tracy Slatyer from MIT will visit UCLouvain from May 16 -20 to give the Georges Lemaître Chair lecture series on "New probes of dark matter physics in astrophysics and cosmology". Tracy is a leading expert in the field of astroparticle physics, and an experienced educator who has taught courses on dark matter and related topics at… Continue reading New probes of dark matter physics in astrophysics and cosmology
After months of video calls, mail exchanges, and monologues in front of the mirror, the be.h community has held its "Equinox Meeting" at the beautiful Hof Van Liere in Antwerp. Gathered on the second floor of this 16th-century city palace with indoor cows, gardens and galleries, the fifty participants - the majority on site -… Continue reading be.h is back…in presence!
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
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
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
