Implications of Decoupling New Physics

by Dr Tevong You (University of Cambridge)


The Higgs boson appears Standard-Model-like to a first approximation. Moreover, there seem to be no accompanying new particles close to the weak scale. This null result in the search for BSM by the LHC may well end up being its most important legacy--the Michelson-Morley equivalent of the 21st century--with important consequences in the search for new physics. On the other hand, there are signs of deviations from the Standard Model in precision measurements of B meson decays. This is the context in which I will discuss the implications of decoupling new physics to heavier scales for phenomenology, model-building, and future colliders.
