A Consistent Limit of 11D Supergravity
Eric A. Bergshoeff, University of Groningen
Event Type: Informal HEP Talk
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM
Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar
Abstract: Following up on earlier work in 10D I will show, motivated by string theory considerations, that there exists a consistent limit of 11D supergravity describing 11D Newtonian supergravity. An important ingredient of the construction is a proper definition of non-Lorentzian geometry whose basic properties I will review. I will discuss the implications of our result and its connection with non-relativistic string theory.

A leptonic vision of the future
Patrick Meade, Stony Brook
Event Type: HEP Seminar
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar
Abstract: Many of our most fundamental questions and puzzles in particle physics are tied to the Higgs boson, and the ability to probe nature at the shortest distances. Nevertheless, the tools to attack these experimentally haven’t qualitatively changed for decades. I will review recent efforts to change this paradigm with lepton colliders, more specifically a muon collider. This includes advances in accelerator, detector and theoretical efforts. In particular I will demonstrate with a number of examples from Higgs physics, dark matter, and beyond, that a muon collider may provide the fastest greenest path to the energy frontier with the largest reach. Furthermore a fully leptonic path with an e+e- Higgs factory, followed by a high energy muon collider provides a strong complementary vision for the future of particle physics.
