Colloquium within National Seminar Theoretical High Energy Physics (DRSTP): "The effective field theory pathway to new physics at the LHC" Eleni Vryodinou (CERN)

Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are mounting a gigantic effort to find signs of New Physics beyond the Standard Model. If new states exist but are heavier than the collider energy reach, their presence can be revealed by precisely measuring the interactions of the Standard Model particles. Determining the strength of these interactions within the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) framework can illuminate the nature of New Physics and answer the most fundamental questions in particle physics. In this talk I give an introduction to the SMEFT framework, review recent progress in precision calculations of processes involving the Higgs and the top quark and highlight the importance of using these results in global SMEFT fits.
