SISSA Colloquium: Novel Directions in the Search for New Physics

20 September 2018
A lecture by Asimina Arvanitaki of the Perimeter Institute, Canada

26 September, 4 pm
SISSA, "P. Budinich" Main Lecture Hall

The Standard Model has been successful in describing phenomena that we observe from galactic down to subatomic scales. Nevertheless, it is not complete. The extreme weakness of gravity or the nature of Dark Matter are examples of puzzles that suggest the presence of new physics. Traditionally, we look for answers at colliders. In the last few years, we realized some of these answers may come from black holes or from precision experiments that look for the tiny signals with which new physics may manifest itself.

SISSA Colloquia are part of the celebration of the School's 40th anniversary. They are intended as a moment of interdisciplinary exchange and a way to reaffirm the sense of belonging to our community
