We will focus on the potential for precision measurements, their role in searching for and disentangling physics beyond the Standard Model, progress in multi-loop and multi-leg calculations of Standard Model processes, new physics cross sections, new approaches and new theoretical developments. There will also be a few talks on more exotic theories and on the latest experimental progress.
Topics covered at RADCOR 2011 include: * Phenomenology at high-energy colliders * QCD physics of hard scattering * Electroweak radiative corrections, and applications to Standard Model and beyond the Standard Model processes * New theoretical methods and tools * Event generators and simulation of signal and background processes * g-2 of muon, heavy quarks (including B physics), and physics at B-factories and in e+e- collisions at lower energies
RADCOR 2007, the 8th International Symposium on Radiative Corrections "Application of Quantum Field Theory to Phenomenology", was held from the 1st to the 5th of October 2007, in Florence, Italy, at the Galileo Galilei Institute (GGI) for theoretical physics.
This is the eight symposium of this series. The main theme of these symposia is the application of quantum field theory to particle physics phenomenology in the high-energy regime. Recent developments in theoretical studies of the radiative corrections of the Standard Model and of its extensions are discussed and compared with available experimental data. Predictions for future experiments are presented.
The scientific program of RADCOR 2007 included the following topics:
- Phenomenology at high-energy colliders (HERA, Tevatron, RHIC, LHC, ILC);
- QCD physics of hard scattering;
- Electroweak radiative corrections, and applications to Standard Model and beyond Standard Model processes;
- New theoretical methods and tools;
- Event generators and simulation of signal and background processes;
- Heavy quarks (including B physics), and physics at B-factories and in e+e- collisions at lower energies;
and other related subjects.
RADCOR 2007 was be co-hosted by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and the Physics Department of the University of Florence.
