A charming decade: using colliders to probe the charm sector of the Standard Model and Beyond

Project description

The flavour of the day is ‘charm’

Since the 1970s, the Standard Model of particle physics has been our best description of the world’s most fundamental matter and what holds it together. Experiments have repeatedly verified its truths, and all particles it predicted have been found experimentally. However, new theoretical and experimental studies open paths to a deeper understanding of our particle world on a regular basis; furthermore, there are very important things the Standard Model does not explain. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the charming-DecaDe project is developing mathematical approaches to charm-flavoured quarks for existing and future experimental data that will both enhance the Standard Model and extend beyond it into the realm of new physics.
