"Latest results on the low-energy search for new physics"
The Standard Model has been enormously successful at predicting the
outcomes of experiments in nuclear and particle physics. The search for
new physical phenomena and a fundamental description of nature which goes
beyond the Standard Model is driven by two complementary experimental
strategies. The first is to build increasingly energetic colliders, such
as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, which aim to excite matter
into a new form. The second, more subtle approach, is to do precision
measurements at moderate energies, where an observed discrepancy with the
Standard Model will reveal the signature of these new forms of matter.
Here we demonstrate that the latest measurements of the electroweak force
severely constrain the possibility of physics beyond the Standard Model to
above the TeV energy scale.
