General Working Group Information

Four discussion groups will be focused on the following scenarios of signatures observed in the initial LHC runs and discuss in particular (but not only) the listed items:

** WG1) Detection of a state with properties that are compatible with a Higgs boson (SM-like or non-SM-like) (+ anything else)
- measurement of mass and spin, quantum numbers
- self-couplings
- precision top studies and electroweak precision physics
WG1 Conveners: S. Dawson, S. Heinemeyer, C. Mariotti and M. Schumacher.
A program of the WG1 activities can be found here.

** WG2) Detection of no state in the first 10 fb^-1 of LHC data with properties that are compatible with a Higgs boson (+ anything else)
- gauge boson self-couplings
- longitudinal vector boson scattering
- exotic Higgs scenarios
- invisibly decaying Higgs scenarios
WG2 Conveners: G. Azuelos, C. Grojean, M. Lancaster and G. Weiglein .
A program of the WG2 activities can be found here.

** WG3) Missing energy (+nothing, leptons, jets)
- measurement of mass and spin, quantum numbers
- dark matter / connection with cosmology
WG3 Conveners: B. Gripaios, F. Moortgat, G. Moortgat-Pick and G. Polesello.

** WG4) Other new signatures
- Leptonic resonances
- multi-gauge-boson signals
- measurement of mass and spin, quantum numbers
- leptoquark-type signatures
- flavour physics
- fourth generation-type signatures, exotic quarks
- TeV scale gravity-type signatures
- other possible signatures of new physics
WG4 Conveners: A. De Roeck, S. Riemann, T. Han and J. Hewett.
