Talk Title: "New frontiers in particle physics"

Abstract:


I will discuss new tools, new searches, and a new proposal for an experiment to look for standard model physics and beyond. Among the topics covered are: new observables associated with anomalies in B-mesons decays; new searches with neutrino beam experiments to look for new weak interactions; a new tool to help discriminate resonances decaying hadronically against background at the LHC; and a proposal for a new experiment to look for milli-charged particles and mirror forces at high energy colliders.
