Speaker

Dr Christopher Gorham Lester (University of Cambridge)

Description

We review the methods which have been proposed for measuring masses of new particles at the Large Hadron Collider paying particular attention to the kinematical techniques suitable for extracting mass information when invisible particles are expected. This talk is, in effect, a companion to a recent review with the same title: http://arxiv.org/abs/1004.2732 (Barr & Lester)
