Low-energy precision physics

External organizers: Krishna Kumar, Michael Ramsey-Musolf

Local organizers: Jens Erler, Harvey Meyer, Hubert Spiesberger

September 23 - October 11, 2013

The scientific program will be focussed on the theory of low-energy precision physics relevant to the MESA and TRIGA initiatives. Topics include searches for TeV-scale physics beyond the Standard Model via ultra-precise measurements of parity-violating electron scattering asymmetries, determinations of neutron decay parameters via precision measurements of its lifetime and decay asymmetries, and searches for EDMs of nucleons, nuclei and atoms. The necessary high-precision theoretical tools to analyse these experiments, which include advanced calculations of radiative corrections, will be explored and developed.The scientific program may be attended by up to 30 scientists at any given time, who are expected to spend at least two weeks at MITP. Participants can receive significant financial support.
