    WITS Node Seminar: Dr. German Carrillo (University of the Witwatersrand)

    Good morning All,

    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 theoretical physics seminar series, entitled:

    "Constraining Beyond the Standard Model physics with the newly discovered Higgs boson with the ATLAS detector"

    to be presented by Dr. German Carrillo (University of the Witwatersrand)

    Abstract: The discovery of the Higgs boson opens many perspectives to explore physics beyond the Standard Model. This talk describes the measurements and searches performed by the ATLAS experiment using the Higgs boson as a portal for new physics. A selected list of the presented searches include: Constraints on the existence of weakly interacting dark-matter particles through Higgs boson to invisible decays; upper limits of Flavour-Chaning-Neutral-Currents in top quark decays and exclusion limits on the existence of Two Higgs Doublet Models.

    Date: Tuesday, 26th November 2013
    Venue: Frank Nabarro Lecture Theatre P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10

    I hope you shall all be able to attend,

    Yours sincerely,

    Alan S. Cornell
