From past highlights i

From past highlights (i)

Honkavaara, Huitu, Roy,

Phys. Rev. D73, 2006

  • how to measure the

  • sneutrino-antisneutrino

  • -mixing at the LHC ?

At LC: measure sneutrino and antisneutrino mixing

 information on neutrino sector parameters

  • Dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking:

  • New technicolor theories.

    • (Sannino,Tuominen, PR D71 2005)

  • Consistent with current data

  • at 68 % confidence!

  • Testable at LHC

Comprehensive description of URHIC

RHIC data - test the approach - controlled LHC prediction - affects ALICE

To the future

to the future:

  • BSM:

  • collider phenomenology: SUSY, technicolor, extra dimensions, …

    • nature of electroweak symmetry breaking

    • CP-violation: B physics (CP breaking mechanism)

    • rare decays: Hints about underlying new physics

    • new particle searches: SUSY partners, technihadrons, new gauge bosons,…

    • SUSY breaking: signals of different breaking mechanisms

  • dark matter candidates:technihadrons, new heavy fermions (SUSY or non-SUSY)

  • techniques:perturbative QFT, non-perturbative methods: lattice, dualities, eff. theories,…

  • Condensed particle matter:

  • QCDdynamics near Tc:effective FTFTs of Polyakov loops & quark/chiral dofs.

  • finite densities:location of the critical point

  • URHIC & QGP – focus on LHC phenomenology:

    • QGP initial state:production dynamics, gluon saturation/CGC, thermalization,...

    • QGP evolution:EoS effects, predict flow effects for LHC, viscous effects

    • QGP signals:jet E-losses, thermal em. probes vs. other hard probes,...

  • techniques:eff. theories beyond mean fields, improved hydro codes, NLO pQCD analyses (nPDFs etc), ...
