**SMEFT: the modern paradigm for particle physics data interpretation**

*Location: 1080 Physics Research Building, Smith Seminar Room*

Faculty Host: Eric Braaten

**Abstract: **

I will discuss the modern interpretation of collider physics data, that has emerged since the discovery of the Higgs (like) boson. To maximize what we learn from the vigorous international collider program in particle physics, and to uncover subtle hints in the data of physics beyond the standard model, theorists have rapidly developed a series of theoretical tools. These tools are powerful constructions known as Effective Field Theories, and i will discuss the Standard Model Effective Field theory in particular, due to its central role in interpreting collider data the last decade and in coming decades. This theory is incredibly versatile and is used to combine many experimental results on different particles at the Large Hadron Collider into a coherent, and well defined, and constantly improving, field theory interpretation. To get the most out of the data using these techniques, theorists have had to develop computer codes, learn new mathematical tools, work with experimental colleagues closely developing novel data analyses, and most recently push forward with new ways of thinking “geometrically” about field theory.I will discuss these exciting developments in an introductory fashion, and explain now, amazingly, a powerful and deep understanding of the physics of the Higgs boson has forced us to think about Large Hadron Collider data in a manner that is very similar to Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity.
