Meeting of the Research Unit "New Physics at the LHC"

Logo Forschergruppe
The goal of the DFG Research Unit 2239 is to provide theoretical calculations, numerical tools and analyses for the systematic study of new physics phenomena in the context of the LHC. Results are being discussed in regular meetings. This upcoming meeting will be focusing on Higgs physics and dark matter at the LHC as well as on the interpretation of exciting new data.

Bethe Colloquium by Prof. Andreas Weiler

December 2015
Peter Koepke

December's Bethe Colloquium will take place on December 3rd
(4:15 pm) in Hörsaal I:

  • Andreas Weiler (Technische Universität München)
  • Naturalness' last stand
  • Hörsaal I, Physikalisches Institut

Abstract: With the discovery of the Higgs boson, the Standard Model of particle physics celebrated a great triumph. It also brought the naturalness puzzle sharper into focus: What keeps the Higgs mass so light? Will supersymmetry soon be found or should we consider a cosmological solution? Run 2 of the LHC is about to tackle this and a multitude of urgent questions. We will review what I consider as the most interesting lessons learned and open issues, and outline the main directions for future progress.

Supersymmetric Grand Unified Theories Poster
We are happy to announce the Lecture Series on "Supersymmetric Grand Unified Theories" from 15th to 19th February, 2016, in the Bethe Center for Theoretical Physics in Bonn. The lectures will be held by Stuart Raby (Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA).

Topics included

  • GUT model building in space-time dimensions
  • Examples of complete 4D SUSY GUTs
  • Orbifold GUTs
  • Embedding orbifold GUTs into the heterotic string
  • Testing SUSY GUTs at the LHC
