Theoretical High Energy Physics

Much of the work of high-energy physics concentrates on the interplay between theory and experiment. The theory group of Argonne's High Energy Physics Division performs high-precision calculations of Standard Model processes, interprets experimental data in terms of physics both within and beyond the Standard Model, and makes predictions for new, well-motivated experimental searches that attempt to provide answers to open questions.

The group addresses theoretical questions in the following areas:

  • Collider Physics
  • Higgs Physics
  • Perturbative QCD
  • Beyond the Standard Model Physics
  • Physics of Quarkonia
  • Cosmological Interface: Dark Matter and Baryogenesis
  • Neutrino Physics
