Title: Fundamental Symmetries in Nuclei: Tackling the Strong Interaction and Hunting for New Physics
Speaker: Michael Ramsey-Musolf - Director, Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions, Univ. of Massachusetts-Amherst
Abstract: Nuclei and hadrons are “laboratories” for exploring nature’s fundamental interactions. In this talk, I discuss the theoretical challenges and advances in the interpretation of experimental tests of fundamental symmetries performed with these strongly interacting systems. This theoretical work has enabled us to exploit such tests to achieve a deeper understanding of the dynamics of Quantum Chromodynamics in the non-perturbative regime and to gain a powerful new tool in the hunt for possible physics beyond the Standard Model.
