From FLAVOR precision tests to LHC discoveries

Objective

With the rise of the large hadron collider (LHC) experiments the field of particle physics has just entered a new era. On the one hand, the LHC experiments are about to give us information on the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB), the EWSB scale-Planck hierarchy and maybe even on the origin of flavor hierarchies. On the other hand, in the last decade huge amount of indirect data from various low energy, precision, experiments was collected. This data, on the possible nature of microscopical dynamics, is invaluable in its power to guide us through our searches for new phenomena at the LHC. Furthermore, once LHC discoveries are made, interpretation of the results will require a synergetic research which combines our understanding of observations at low and high energies. Hence, the interplay between direct and indirect measurements is at the core of this proposal.
