“Confronting the strong CP problem at the LHC” by Anson Hook (Stanford University)

Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 10:45am to 11:45am
Special TEP Seminar

Guest Speaker: Anson Hook (Stanford University)

Talk Title:  “Confronting the strong CP problem at the LHC”


We argue that solutions to the strong CP problem can be tested at the LHC.  Motivated by finding the simplest generalization to the massless up quark solution to the strong CP problem, we find three different solutions that, surprisingly, require the existence of new colored particles with TeV scale masses.  One of these solutions can also be tested by a precision measurement of the top quark mass.  A renewed emphasis on these LHC searches would provide a strong constraint on these solutions to the strong CP problem.
