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.

Hadronic Matrix Elements for Probes of CP Violation

Thursday, January 22, 2015 - 9:00am to Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 2:00pm

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

Electric dipole moments are amongst the most sensitive probes of theories beyond the standard model and novel mechanisms for CP violation. The interpretation of searches for EDMs of nucleons, atoms, and molecules depends on computations of hadronic matrix elements of underlying CP-violating operators. This workshop will assess the present status of these computations and develop a roadmap for pursuing refined hadronic matrix element calculations.
