Theory and Phenomenology of Elementary Particles

Teoria e fenomenologia delle interazioni fondamentali

The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics is the theory describing the fundamental interactions between the basic entities of nature.

After the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, particle physics entered a new era. The current challenges of high-energy particle accelerators are the measurement of the properties of the Higgs boson, as well as the search for new particles beyond the spectrum of the SM. These studies are complemented by high-precision measurements of fundamental parameters of the SM that provide a test of the theory at the quantum level, such as the measurement of the muon anomalous magnetic moment in dedicated high-statistics experiments.

The work of  the group has to be placed in this general framework and is focused on the development of precision calculations and Monte Carlo generators of interest for the experiments at the energy and intensity frontiers.
