Description

The SM cannot explain the origin of the weak scale, nor the origin of dark matter, nor the cosmic surfeit of baryons. The answers to these and other questions could conceivably come from new physics at either high energy --- or low energy, through mixing with an as yet undetected hidden sector. I will draw a suite of examples from the precision frontier, including the g-2 of the muon and searches for permanent EDMs, rare decays, and neutron-antineutron oscillations, to show how they, taken in aggregate, can speak to a bigger picture.
