With the expected energy upgrade of the LHC the frequency of boosted final states will increase and even more sophisticated methods will be needed to search for physics beyond the Standard Model
The symmetries of parity (P) and its combination with charge conjugation (C) are known to be broken in the weak interaction.
The LHC is a tremendously powerful tool built to explore physics at the tera-electron-volt scale. This year it is being operated with a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV, which is a little over half of ...
LHCb reported the most precise measurement to date of an asymmetry in B-mesons.
The predictions in these channels suffer from relatively large theoretical uncertainties but these can be overcome by measuring asymmetries in which the uncertainties cancel.
The Daya Bay reactor antineutrino experiment has observed the disappearance of electron-antineutrinos at a distance of about 2 km from the reactors.
With a branching ratio of about 2 per 100 million decays, this is the rarest decay of a B hadron ever observed.
The LHCb collaboration has determined the sign of the width difference in the Bs system, ΔΓs, through the influence of quantum-mechanical interference.
The LHCb collaboration has announced of the most interesting (and unexpected) results to come from the LHC so far: evidence of CP violation in charm decays.
Physicists at the Double Chooz experiment have found an indication of a disappearance of electron-antineutrinos that is consistent with neutrino oscillations.
