Add to Calendar 1/29/2018 1:00 pm 1/29/2018 America/Chicago High Energy/Medium Energy Physics Seminar:"Seeking Long-Lived Sectors, and Cracking Semileptonic Enigmas." DESCRIPTION:

New methods and novel strategies are needed in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), and understanding the few hints of new physics (NP) in the current data is becoming increasingly urgent. I discuss the development, theory motivations and reach for a proposed subdetector at the LHCb experiment -- CODEX-b -- capable of competitively searching for decays-in-flight of exotic long-lived particles, which can be signals of a wide range of well-motivated BSM theories. I'll then turn to examine the status of persistent and potentially exciting lepton flavor universality violation anomalies seen in semileptonic B decays. New theoretical tools are required to self-consistently and efficiently classify these potential BSM signals.

I'll discuss the development of these tools, including state-of-the-art approaches to controlling the dominant theory uncertainties and calculating predictions for NP sensitive observables.
