Boosted objects and subjects at the LHC

Tuesday October 18th, 15:30 hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Jon Butterworth UCL (London)

Abstract:

The Large Hadron Collider has been providing 7 TeV proton-proton collisions for a year an a half, exploring physics above the scale of electroweak unification. Uniquely at these energies, particles with masses at the electroweak scale - W,Z,top and possibly the Higgs boson - can be produced well above threshold, and thus with high Lorentz boosts.

This creates new challenges and opportunities for data analysis which are being very actively tackled. I will report the status of this work and discuss its potential.
