What does the Large Hadron Collider say about the neutrino mass?
Sunil Somalwar (Rutgers)
Abstract: By colliding ultra-energetic protons, the LHC
conditions which existed a mere 10-100 picoseconds after the big bang. This
hot universe looked very different from ours, and understanding it should
answer outstanding fundamental questions of today such as how did the
antimatter disappear, why is the Higgs boson so light, are there other Higgs
bosons, why the neutrinos are almost massless, and so on. I will discuss
very rare LHC events which contain multiple electrons and muons. A thorough
analysis of such multi-lepton events could reveal new physical phenomena and
shed light on the early universe.
