Tevatron Physics Results (2/4)

by Dr. B. Heinemann (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

Wednesday, 28 November 2007 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 500-1-001 - Main Auditorium )
Description
I will summarize the physics results from the Tevatron experiments with particular emphasis on the experimental methods used in different kinds of analysis. In particular, the Tevatron is a proton-antiproton collider that has now accumulated more than 2 fb^-1 of luminosity in the two experiments, called CDF and D0. In this lecture I will review the results on inclusive productions of jets, W- and Z-bosons, the results in the flavor sector, the measurements of top production, searches for Higgs boson production and searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. In each case I will explain the basic experimental concepts and methods needed for making the measurement.
