Putting SMEFT Fits to Work

Not scheduled
20m
EFT Session

Speaker

Dr Samuel Homiller (Harvard)

Description

The Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) provides a consistent framework for comparing precision measurements at the LHC to the Standard Model (SM). The observation of statistically significant non-zero SMEFT coefficients would correspond to physics beyond the SM (BSM) of some sort. A more difficult question to answer is what, if any, detailed information about the nature of the underlying high scale model can be obtained from these measurements (the "Higgs Inverse Problem"). In this work, we consider the patterns of SMEFT coefficients in five example models and discuss the assumptions inherent in using global fits to make BSM conclusions. As a by-product of our study, we present an up-dated global fit to SMEFT coefficients including some NLO corrections in the SMEFT theory.
