QCD for New Physics Searches at the Sensitivity Frontier
Prof. Susan Gardner (University of Kentucky - USA)

Questions that drive searches for physics beyond the Standard Model
include the physical origin of the cosmic baryon asymmetry and of dark
matter. Quark dynamics, as realized through the theory of
quantum chromodynamics (QCD), can appear in these
studies in very different ways. In this talk, I develop these
possibilities explicitly, first describing the role of QCD in
ultra-sensitive searches for new physics, particularly at low energies,
and then turning to how its features could be exploited in describing
the undiscovered universe, along with the essential observational and
experimental tests that could confirm them.
