High-energy physics

Searching for Physics Beyond the Standard Model in the 3rd Generation with the ATLAS Detector
The Standard Model (SM) of Particle Physics has successfully predicted experimental results for decades, but open theoretical questions remain. As the most massive particle in the SM the Top quark plays a special role in many Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) theories. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) provides a unique opportunity to directly search for signatures of BSM physics at previously unreachable energies.
News from the Extreme Energy Cliff
Thanks to giant extensive air-showers observatories, such as the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Telescope Array (TA), we now know that the sources of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) are extragalactic. We also know that either they interact with the CMB as predicted or they run out of energy at the same energy scale of the CMB interactions!
First Measurement of Electroweak Vector Boson Scattering and Potential for New Physics Discovery at ATLAS
The announcement of the Higgs discovery in July 2012 was a monumental achievement for High Energy Physics. Even if the recently discovered boson turns out to be the Higgs boson, its role in electroweak (EW) scattering of two vector bosons (V= W,Z) still needs to be experimentally established to confirm the SM nature of EWSB. This process (EW VBS) was measured for the first time by ATLAS in the same (electric charge) sign WW (ssWW) channel.
Explaining the Inexplicable: Achieving Dark Sector Mass Relations Via Renormalization Group Focusing
As constraints on dark matter from direct detection, indirect detection and collider experiments become more stringent, many models of electroweak-scale dark matter must now exhibit very specific mass relations in the dark sector to remain viable. For instance, the dark matter may be close in mass to another state, permitting coannihilation with or phase-space suppressed annihilation to the other state.
Searching for Exotic New Physics at the LHC and Beyond
The Standard Model of particle physics provides an excellent description of particle interactions at high energies and small distance scales. With the recent discovery of the Higgs boson, the predicted particle content of the Standard Model is now complete. However, the Standard Model cannot explain certain phenomena, such as the origin of non-zero neutrino masses, the nature of dark matter, and why the Higgs mass appears to be very finely tuned.
