Welcome! Our mission is to advance research in
theoretical and experimental physics at the interface
of the Energy, Intensity, and Cosmic frontiers.

We seek answers to key open questions about
nature’s fundamental interactions, such as:

Why is there more matter than anti-matter in the Universe?

What additional forces were active during the first moments after the Big Bang?

How are protons and neutrons put together?

We address these and other questions through international
topical workshops; a visiting researcher program;
UMass faculty, staff, and student research
as well as other activities.

The CP Nature of the Higgs Boson

Friday, May 1, 2015 - 9:00am to Sunday, May 3, 2015 - 12:00pm

Lederle Graduate Research Tower (LGRT) 419B, UMass Amherst

A variety of extended Higgs sector models contain new sources of CP-violation that may have implications for the origin of the cosmic baryon asymmetry. The goal of the workshop is to identify the existing low-energy constraints on Higgs CP violation as well as the possible signatures at high-energy colliders. Given the imminent start of Run II at the LHC, the prospects of significantly more sensitive low-energy CPV probes, and developing plans for future lepton and hadron colliders, it is timely to explore in detail the best strategies for uncovering CP-violation in Higgs sector extensions.
