Z' Explanations of Neutral Current B Anomalies

  • Event time: 4:00pm until 5:00pm
  • Event date: 29th March 2019
  • Speaker: Professor Ben C. Allanach (University of Cambridge)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room, Room 4305,

Event details

We shall review simplified Z' models as explanations for discrepancies between measurements of certain neutral current B meson decays and Standard Model predictions. We provide estimates of LHC and future collider sensitivity. Then a more complete model is introduced: The Third Family Hypercharge Model, which also explains some coarse features of the fermion mass spectrum.
