The network programme

We concentrate on the following physics topics:

  • SUSY scenarios — investigation of new decays
  • connection to string theories — extra dimensions
  • Higgs sector, in various scenarios within and beyond the Standard Model
  • CP-violation in B-decays, rare B-decays, top-decays

An important aspect of the network is training of research students. Since the Nordic research groups are small, it is difficult to provide up-to-date education spanning over a wide range of rapidly evolving topics. In the framework of the network, we have already provided courses on:

  • Higgs physics: A. Read, Oslo 2001; E. Richter-Was, Bergen 2003; D. Rainwater, D. Miller, Copenhagen 2004
  • Supersymmetry: J. Kalinowski, J. Rosiek, B. Grzadkowski, A. Lipniacka, S. Hellman, Stockholm 2001; G. Polesello, Bergen 2003; S. Kraml, T. Plehn, Copenhagen 2004
  • Extra dimensions: G. Giudice, L. Alvarez-Gaume, A. Parker, Helsinki 2002
  • CP violation: R. Fleischer, Uppsala 2002
  • Top quark physics: C. Clement, Lund 2003
  • LHC physics Monte Carlo generators: T. Sjöstrand, Uppsala 2002, L. Lönnblad, Stockholm 2004
  • Start-up of the LHC: A. Lipniacka, Bergen 2003, S. Bentvelsen, Stockholm 2004
  • Statistical methods and data analysis at the LHC, B. King, S. Bentvelsen, Stockholm 2004
  • Particle identification at the LHC, P. Eerola, Bergen 2003

The following list shows some examples of research topics which have been investigated. For a full list, see the list of network publications.
