Colloquia IFIC - Severo Ochoa

New Physics and Unification of Forces

by Prof. Pavel Fileviez Pérez (Case Western Reserve University)

Thursday, 16 November 2017 from to (Europe/Brussels)
at Parc Científic ( Salón de Actos Edificio de Cabecera )
In this talk the main ideas for the unification of the gauge interactions are discussed. We discuss the great desert hypothesis in particle physics which defines the relation between the electroweak scale and the high scale where an unified theory could describes physics. We review the desert hypothesis and discuss the main experimental constraints from rare decays. We present a new class of theories for the TeV scale where the desert hypothesis is not needed. The implications for cosmology, collider experiments and the unification of forces are discussed.
