Parallel talk Searches for New Physics

Speaker

Description

Many extensions of the Standard Model include the possibility of light new particles, such as axions or dark matter candidates. These scenarios can be probed using the large data sets collected by the $B$-factories, complementing measurements performed at the LHC. The $BABAR$ collaboration has conducted an extensive program to search for axions in $B$ decays and for self-interacting or non-miminal dark forces. In this talk, we’ll report on the most recent results.
