YETI'08: from the Tevatron to the LHC and beyond

from to (Europe/London)
Description
The Young Experimentalists and Theorists Institute aims to promote interaction between the two halves of the PP community at the early career stage and encourage interest in phenomenology. Talks and discussion sessions are at a non-expert/intermediate level.

The emphasis of YETI'08 is on what has been learned at the Tevatron, and how that will impact on the LHC.

We will review various aspects of the experimental measurements,  such as the importance of the trigger, the jet energy scale,  the missing transverse momentum measurement and diffractive production  as well as extracting physics with bottom quarks and the top quark analysis.  

On the theory side,  we will review Higgs and supersymmetric Higgs  phenomenology, (particularly the differences between the MSSM and the NMSSM),  other exotic Higgs models,  tools for studying supersymmetry  and a discussion of the differences between different models with extra dimensions.

The hands-on sessions feature the MADGRAPH and SHERPA programs. We will compute the same set of physical observables  with each program, culminating in a comparison both with each other and with available data from the Tevatron.  As well as learning how to use each tool, the comparison will improve understanding of the limitations of the tools.
