Theory seminar: : Tom Tong, "Anomalies circa 2023: the last survivors"

L017 (CWI)




Time and time again, particle phenomenologists trace tiny anomalies in experimental results to reveal the silhouette of new physics. In the year of 2023 (MMXXIII), some of the heavily-pursued anomalies had faded into limbo. Nevertheless, there was the long-standing Cabbibo-angle anomaly of the first-row CKM matrix, and the fresh-baked CDF measurement of the W boson mass, as the survivors standing their own ground in the worlds of high- and low-energy physics. Certainly, the path forward was getting narrower. Yet the adventurers must proceed…
