### What is the origin of baryonic matter ?

Fundamental Symmetries & Cosmic History

- What were the fundamental symmetries that governed the microphysics of the early universe?

The (broken) symmetries of the Standard Model of particle physics work remarkably well at late times, but they leave many unsolved puzzles pertaining to the early universe

- What insights can low energy (E << MZ) precision electroweak studies provide?

New forces and their symmetries generally imply the existence of new particles. Looking for their footprints in low energy processes can yield important clues about their character

Probing Fundamental Symmetries beyond the SM:

Use precision low-energy measurements to probe virtual effects of new symmetries & compare with collider results

- Precision measurements predicted a range for mt before top quark discovery
- mt >> mb !
- mt is consistent with that range
- It didn’t have to be that way

II.Why a “New Standard Model”?

- There is no unification in the early SM Universe
- The Fermi constant is inexplicably large
- There shouldn’t be this much visible matter
- There shouldn’t be this much invisible matter

S. Perlmutter

Supersymmetry, GUT’s, extra dimensions…

There must have been additional symmetries in the earlier Universe to- Unify all forces
- Protect GF from shrinking
- Produce all the matter that exists

- Account for neutrino properties
- Give self-consistent quantum gravity

III.Supersymmetry

- Unify all forces
- Protect GF from shrinking
- Produce all the matter that exists

- the early Universe was supersymmetric
- there is supersymmetricdark matter

The weak charges can serve a similar diagnostic purpose for other models for high energy symmetries, such as left-right symmetry, grand unified theories with extra U(1) groups, etc.

EDM constraints & SUSY CPVConclusions

- The Standard Model is triumph of 20th century physics, but we know it is far from a complete theory

Lack of unification, size of the Fermi constant, abundance of matter, neutrino mass, gravity,…

- Supersymmetry is a leading candidate theory that might address many of these SM shortcomings

Future high-energy collider experiments may discover it

- Precision measurements in particle, nuclear, and atomic physics at energies below MZcan provide important indirect information about what form of SUSY - if any - is viable

Weak decays, lepton scattering, electric dipole moments

Conclusions

- The interface between high-energy collider physics and precision low-energy physics involves a rich and stimulating “synergy” between many sub-fields of physics
