Add to Calendar 10/25/2018 2:00 pm 10/25/2018 America/Chicago Medium and High Energy Physics Seminar: "The Supersymmetry Swindle" DESCRIPTION:

Despite the explanatory advantages of a weak-scale supersymmetry, the LHC has found no evidence for it. SUSY seemed so natural in many ways, but we are now forced to acknowledge that we were too optimistic that a simple SUSY would quickly solve many of the SM problems. This talk will outline some important ways we’ve misled ourselves with naïve assumptions in searches for physics beyond the standard model and how we can attempt to still find new physics this far into the LHC’s lifetime. Non-standard searches for new phenomena from ATLAS experiment will be presented.
