Dark Matter at the LHC with and without Supersymmetry

Fri., Nov. 24, 2017 3:30 p.m. - Fri., Nov. 24, 2017 4:30 p.m.

Location: CL 317

Abstract: The idea of dark matter can be regarded as a scientific fact - we see its gravitational effects in many observations and it is an integral part of the dominant cosmological model. Nevertheless, it has escaped detection so far, despite the serious efforts, including searches at the Large Hadron Collider. In this talk I will share my understanding of the current experimental status, will discuss some theories and models predicting dark matter, and will present some recent results. 

Speaker: Dr. N. Kolev, Department of Physics, University of Regina
