Chirality plays a fundamental role in the Standard Model, where the charged weak current is modeled as purely left handed. Models for new physics naturally break this symmetry so sensitive searches for chirality-flipping interactions could be a powerful tool for discovery.

When the universe was hot and sticky: Characterizing the quark-gluon plasma

Speaker: 
Charles Gale (McGill)

Location: 
TRIUMF Auditorium


The phase diagram of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD, the theory of the strong interaction) is only poorly known. There are currently vibrant experimental and theoretical programs that concentrate on the production, study, and characterization of the quark-gluon plasma: a fundamental state of matter that existed a few microseconds after the Big Bang. I will describe the theoretical aspects of this endeavour, and highlight some of the surprises uncovered along the way.
