Event details

Now are the times of factories for flavour degrees of freedoms. Charm is no exceptions. I will discuss the two banes that plague the study of charm. One is the tiny signatures that known dynamics leave in charm resulting in daunting demands on statistics. The other is the lack of concrete prescriptions to deal with physics lying between the perturbative and non-perturbative regimes. While the former, in a sense, can be shown to be a boon in the age of factories, the latter requires new, possibly radical, ideas. I shall touch upon a few aspects of charm dynamics that might come into focus with the advent of the flavour factories.

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
