Title:Flavorful Leptogenesis and Collider Signals

Abstract:

Low-scale leptogenesis provides a unique opportunity to test the connection between two beyond the Standard Model phenomena, namely, neutrino mass and baryon asymmetry of the universe. We will elucidate this connection in the context of TeV-scale seesaw models with discrete flavor symmetries, in which case, the Dirac Yukawa couplings are completely dictated by the low-energy neutrino mixing parameters and the heavy neutrino masses. This scenario predicts distinctive correlated features in CP and lepton number/flavor violating observables, which could be used to probe this scenario at the high-energy frontier.


Physics Colloquium:

Date:Thursday, September 7, 2017
Time:3:30 PM
Place:PS 110
Title:Neutrino as a Gateway to New Physics

Abstract:

Neutrinos have played a crucial role in our understanding of the Universe. In particular, the discovery of neutrino oscillations has provided a concrete evidence for the existence of some new physics beyond the Standard Model. However, given the lack of information on the exact nature of the underlying new physics, it is crucial to take a broader, coherent approach by exploring possible connections with other empirically-supported clues. To this end, we will discuss a synergistic study using the neutrino portal at three interrelated frontiers of fundamental physics. The complementarity between various high and low-energy observables makes this study extremely useful, irrespective of the final outcome of the ongoing direct searches for new physics at the Large Hadron Collider.

Note: The traditional student-speaker chat will begin in Physical Sciences Room 147 at 3:00 PM. All students are welcome! Refreshments will be served.

Title:Three Minute Thesis and Three Minute Presentations Competitions

Abstract:

The three minute competitions help non-thesis masters and graduate certificate students (3MP) and thesis master’s and doctoral students (3MT) learn to present what they do as graduate students and how this is relevant to meeting societal needs in a concise, understandable and engaging manner. For the first time, both the 3MP and 3MT competitions will be offered in the fall semester. Cash prizes can be won by your students at the preliminary or college level ($100–$300) and for the OSU Finals ($500–$1,000).

Note: The traditional student-speaker chat will begin in Physical Sciences Room 147 at 3:00 PM. All students are welcome! Refreshments will be served.
