Precision calculations for high-energy collider processes

Not scheduled
Electroweak physics (physics of the W, Z, H bosons, of the top quark, and QED)


For the field of particle physics to benefit from the immense body of data from present and possible future colliders, it is essential to be able to accurately relate the experimental observations to the underlying Lagrangian. This is the case whether searching for physics beyond the Standard Model, exploring the many facets of the Higgs sector, or pinning down fundamental parameters such as coupling constants and particles masses, which have implications for foundational questions such as the stability of the universe. This document discusses the current status and future objectives of precision theory for collider processes, and outlines the needs required to accomplish them.
