- SM and NLO
I: 30 May-8 June 2011
This group will address the issue of
the theoretical predictions for multileg
in particular beyond leading order, and the
possibility of implementing these calculations in Monte Carlos. This
working group aims at a cross breeding between novel approaches
(twistors, unitarity cuts,...) and improvements in standard
techniques. The precision NLO and in some instances NNLO
predictions extend also to Higgs observables. New development in
the physics of jets will also covered.
- New Physics
Session II: 8-17
This is a beyond the Standard
Model group covering new models of electroweak symmetry breaking and
their phenomenology. The emphasis this year will be on
alternatives to SUSY that address the
problem of symmetry
breaking, although some aspects of SUSY phenomenology will be
addressed. It will also address the issues of model reconstruction and
model independent searches based on topologies. The connection
Dark Matter and the impact from astrophysics and cosmology will
addressed especially that we expect new data in this field.
usual within the Les Houches PhysTeV series, we expect a strong
interplay and collaboration between these different groups and
their subgroups. This is especially true in 2011 where a more active
and close collaboartion between the SM and New Physics working group
will take place in view of the new data from the LHC. We therefore expect some model
builders to attend session I and some SM experts to attend session II.
The projects are to start in January
2011 and should be completed by the end
of the year 2011

A more detailed plan of work and
lists of specific topics together with the conveners in charge will be
provided by Dec 1st 2010. By then a wikipage for the 2011 session will
also be set up.
