Physics & Astronomy Colloquium
September 7, 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Faculty Interests Mini Colloquia:
Speaker: Georg Schwiete
Title: Transport in quantum many-body systems
Abstract: This mini-colloquium will mainly be aimed at beginning graduate students. I will briefly discuss examples of the rich variety of transport phenomena in condensed matter systems at low temperatures. While doing so, I also intend to comment on the theoretical tools that can be used for their description and to outline possible future directions of research.
Speaker: Conor Henderson
Title: Searching for Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider
Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is colliding protons at the highest energies ever achieved in the laboratory. After observing the long-elusive Higgs Boson, it is hoped that these high-energy collisions may also reveal evidence for new physics beyond our current Standard
Model. The UA group led by Dr. Conor Henderson and Dr. Paolo Rumerio collaborates on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the LHC. This talk will describe the research work of the UA group in the search for beyond-Standard Model physics with the CMS detector.
The colloquia will be preceded by light refreshments in GL227 from 3:30 – 3:45p.m.
