"Brout-Englert-Higgs Mechanism and Beyond"


Ajinkya S. Kamat (Ph.D. student) , University of Virginia
[Host: GPSA]
ABSTRACT:
In this talk I will elaborate on what the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism is and how it leads to masses of the elementary particles in the Nature. I will also talk about what remains to be done on the theoretical front beyond the standard model of particle physics after the discovery of the Higgs boson at LHC and what our research group is doing in that direction. This will be a semi-technical talk understandable to graduate and undergraduate students.

Sponsored by Department of Physics and UVA Graduate Council
