CLICdp WG: Physics Potential
This working group coordinates the theory community effort to assess the CLIC potential to discover cracks in the Standard Model. The physics picture that is emerging from the LHC results and the recent completion of the CLIC feasibility study and detector design, make this assessment particularly timely, in preparation of the forthcoming update of the European Strategy.
New physics might be discovered at CLIC either indirectly, through precise measurements showing departures from the Standard Model predictions, or via the direct observation of new particles. Both aspects will be investigated under several beyond-the-Standard Model perspectives.
