In the first lecture, the Standard Model is reviewed, with the aim of seeing how its successes constrain possible extensions, the significance of the apparently low Higgs mass indicated by precision electroweak experiments is discussed, and defects of the Standard Model are examined. The second lecture includes a general discussion of the electroweak vacuum and an introduction to supersymmetry, motivated by the gauge hierarchy problem. In the third lecture, the phenomenology of supersymmetric… 

Limits of the Standard Model

Supersymmetry is one of the most plausible extensions of the Standard Model, since it is well motivated by the hierarchy problem, supported by measurements of the gauge coupling strengths, consistent


These lectures provide a phenomenological introduction to supersymmetry, concentrating on the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). In the first lecture, motivationsare

New Basis for the Standard Model for Electroweak Interactions

The standard model for electroweak interactions uses the concepts of weak hypercharge and local gauge invariance of the Lagrangian density under the gauge group SU(2) x U(1). Taylor has remarked that

Aspects of branes in (heterotic) M-theory

First a short introduction to principles and some recent developments in string theory is given. In a second part the effective action for fiveas well as four-dimensional heterotic M-theory in the

Update on the direct detection of dark matter in MSSM models with non-universal Higgs masses

We discuss the possibilities for the direct detection of neutralino dark matter via elastic scattering in variants of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) with

submitter : Study of Alternative Statistical Methods for a Model Unspecific Search in CMS

This thesis extends the MUSiC analysis by two components, and proposes a different algorithm, called “Bump Hunter”, a purely data driven analysis, searching for deviations in the smooth distribution of certain observables, which doesn’t rely on Standard Model Monte Carlo predictions.

Two Higgs doublet model of type II facing flavor physics data

We discuss tests of the charged Higgs sector of the two Higgs doublet model (2HDM) of type II in the light of recent flavor physics data. Particular attention is paid to recent measurement of purely

Sensitivity Studies for the Model Unspecific Search in CMS ( MUSiC ) at √ s = 13 TeV

The Model Unspecific Search in CMS (MUSiC) is an approach to analyse the data taken with the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This thesis uses the MUSiC code developed for the

Beyond the Standard Model for Montañeros

These notes cover (i) electroweak symmetry breakingin the Standard Model (SM) and the Higgs boson, (ii) alternatives to the SM Higgs bosonincluding an introduction to composite Higgs models and



Physics at LEP

In this contribution I have given a brief survey of some of the most interesting new particle searches which can be performed at LEP. Particular emphasis has been given to the particles (Higgs

Gauge Theories of the Strong, Weak, and Electromagnetic Interactions

This paper presents a meta-analyses of Granger Formalism and Conservation Laws and its applications to Gauge Invariance, concluding with axiomatic conclusions about the role of quantum mechanics in conservation.

On S

The sentential logic S extends classical logic by an implication-like connective and proves completeness results and study conditions for proceeding from one family of logics to another.
