Neue Methoden zur Messung der Tau-Masse mit dem Belle II Experiment in Japan
The tau lepton is the least understood lepton of the Standard model. Its short lifetime and decays involving invisible particles make it the most challenging charged lepton to study. The Belle II experiment at KEK in Japan will provide an unprecedentedly large dataset of tau lepton events, enabling highly precise measurements of the properties of this particle. In this project, new approaches to measuring the tau lepton mass will be investigated, making use of simulation studies to explore the potential of this new technique, with possible subsequent applications to real data in longer-term projects.

Suche nach Physik jenseits des Standardmodells in Tau-Zerfällen mit dem Belle II Experiment in Japan
The tau lepton is the least understood lepton of the Standard model. Its short lifetime and decays involving invisible particles make it the most challenging charged lepton to study. On the other hand it is the most promising lepton candidate to display BSM signatures, since its high mass enhances the coupling to new effects in many New Physics models. Recently LHCb obtained results which are in tension with the SM, as there is an indication for Lepton Flavour Violation. The Belle II experiment at KEK in Japan is in a unique position to study the tau and being able to find signatures of dark matter, lepton flavour violation, or both. Several topics can be offered to students in this area, involving Machine learning methods and analysis with Bayesian Analysis tools.
