Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics

Prof. Martin Beneke

Research Field

Our research is in theoretical particle physics. We are interested in high-energy collider phenomenology, perturbative loop calculations, searches for physics beyond the Standard Model and the phenomenology of the Standard Model, the physics of heavy quarks (bottom, top), CP violation, strong interaction physics and some aspects of cosmology/dark matter.

Production of Dark Matter in the Early Universe: conversion versus annihilation
Dark Matter represents an important component in the composition of the Universe, and numerous observations point at its existence. Dark Matter could consist of a so far unknown particle species. Its interaction with known particles of the Standard Model can explain the production of Dark Matter in the Early Universe. In this work, the dynamics of the particle reactions resulting from such interactions in the Early Universe is studied. The aim is to determine the mass and coupling strength that can explain the measured abundance of Dark Matter in models with several new particle species. Starting from the well known thermal freeze-out of annihilation processes, an extension featuring conversions as well as annihilations is being studied.
suitable as
  • Bachelor’s Thesis Physics
Supervisor: Martin Beneke
Toward a complete b->c tau nu fit in the Weak Effective Theory

You will use the EOS software to generate a hypothetical data set of experimental measurements, and use it to validate a fit of the b->c tau nu Wilson coefficients of the effective theory. You will take care to explore possible blind directions in the parameter space, and seek new observables that break these blind directions. Your thesis will pave the way toward a complete extraction of the experimental information contained in upcoming data sets by the LHCb and Belle II experiments.

Knowledge of Python is required.
