Plenary Talk Session 4


Dr Kathleen Whalen


Despite the successes of the Standard Model, there remain a number of unanswered questions about the nature of the universe, including what are dark matter and dark energy, why is gravity so weak, what is the origin of the matter/anti-matter asymmetry of the universe, and why does the Higgs boson have its particular mass.  ATLAS and CMS conduct extensive search programs for proposed extensions to the Standard Model that might help to answer some of these questions, and others.  While some of these new physics models would appear in traditional searches for resonances or as excesses of events with large missing transverse momentum, a growing number of them exploit unconventional detector signatures like disappearing tracks, displaced vertices, and tracks with large energy loss.  This talk presents the latest results from the search program, using Run 2 data from the LHC.
