Berkeley Workshop on High pT Hadron Collider Physics
Berkeley Workshop on
High PT Hadron Collider Physics
Particle Physics has entered an exciting era with the advent of the
Large Hadron Collider at CERN allowing to probe the TeV scale
in an unprecedented manner. It offers exciting opportunities
to understand the Nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and to observe
new fundamental particles that may have existed at the beginning of the Universe and may
still exist today.
The purpose of this series of workshops is to get theorists and
experimentalists together on selected and specific topics regarding
the understanding of data at the high energy hadron colliders.
The workshop will in
particular address questions regarding physics at the Large Hadron Collider
that started operation in 2009. There will typically be one or
one workshop per year. The questions addressed in this series will
center around the understanding of Standard Model processes
and the discussion of searches and interpretations of possible physics
beyond the Standard Model. At each workshop the goal is to gather the leading
experimentalists and theorists in the particular area to facilitate a lively
discussion that may lead to progress in our understanding of the theoretical
predictions and uncertainties and in future developments needed in both the
experimental and theoretical areas. In particular data from the Tevatron are
crucial to understand the current state-of-the-art in hadron collider physics.
