LHC Phenomenology

Phenomenological Studies at the LHC

// LHC experiments and phenomenology

Experiências LHC e Fenomenologia

In order to address the physics potential of the LHC program, a significant joint effort of the experimental and theoretical community is required. This effort considered not only the study of the best physical observables to perform a precise test of the Standard Model (SM) of Elementary Particle Physics at LHC, but also the development of new ideas for physics beyond the SM. In the present project, specific topics of the physics program of the LHC were addressed from both the experimental and theoretical points of view.

The project was very successful in the past in attracting students (from Portuguese and foreign universities) and provided the correct framework for the development of several MSc and PhD thesis already, both in experimental and theoretical physics. The project in itself is very valuable once it brings together the experimental and theoretical communities under a common goal of research, with the long term objective of exploring in an efficient way the data that will be collected at the LHC. As was done in the past, regular meetings were performed in the course of the project, and seminars were given in order to motivate the scientific community to the physics potential of the LHC.

Particularly relevant is the fact that a new branch of LIP (LIP-Minho) is under development at the University of Minho, North of Portugal, bringing the field of High Energy Particle Physics and Astroparticle Physics to the Northern Universities of Portugal. This initiative started February 2010 and counts already with the collaboration of 23 researchers: 6 senior PhD members, 5 PhD students, 8 Master students, 3 undergraduate students and 1 computer sciences engineer.
