Theory Beyond The Standard Model

Group members: Ben Allanach, Damien George, Ben Gripaios, David Sutherland

The group works to develop theories of new physics that address inconsistencies within the current "Standard Model" of High Energy Physics. These inconsistencies may be theoretical, associated with the mathematical formulation of the theory, or experimental, arising in the form of disagreement between the predictions of the theory and experiments carried out in particle colliders or astrophysical observations. Once a new theory has been found, the group works to explore fully its observational consequences, in order to devise possible experimental tests that may confirm or disprove the theory.
