    WITS Node Seminar: Prof. Roberto Trotta (Imperial College, University of London)

    The National Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the Centre for Theoretical Physics, School of Physics, would like to invite to its coming talk in the theory seminar series, entitled:

    "Latest results in supersymmetry phenomenology from global scans"

    to be presented by Prof. Roberto Trotta (Imperial College, University of London)

    Abstract: I will present the implications of recent LHC and direct Dark Matter detection data on the phenomenology of supersymmetric theories. I will focus on the complementarity of different approaches to the problem of detecting and characterizing Dark Matter using multiple probes, namely direct detection, indirect detection, colliders and cosmology. I will discuss the statistical challenges posed by a complete exploration of the complex supersymmetric parameter spaces and how they can be met thanks to recent developments in Bayesian methods.

    Date: Monday, 2nd April 2012
    Venue: Frank Nabarro Lecture Theatre P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10
