The discovery of the Higgs boson opened a new window to the search for new physics related to electroweak symmetry breaking. Constraints from low-energy precision observables frequently put more stringent bounds on anomalous interactions than collider searches. As an example, I will show constraints on CP-violating Higgs couplings to the third generation, derived from electric dipole moments. I will also discuss bounds on anomalous ttZ couplings from rare meson decays.
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..
