Mirror Mirror on the Wall, which Higgs is the oddest of them all: Exploring the Top-Higgs Interconnection with ATLAS

Project description

Searching elusive particle interactions for clues to the origin of mass

The Higgs boson is a special elementary particle that mediates a field that gives mass to all elementary particles. Interactions between the Higgs boson and the top quark, the heaviest elementary particle, are the strongest. These top–Higgs interactions are an excellent test bench to investigate the so-called charge-parity (CP) violation. The CP violation theoretically explains why we observe more matter than antimatter in the universe – but it practically has not been observed enough itself. The EU-funded TheHiggsAndThe7Tops project is planning to reveal the CP properties in the top–Higgs interaction for revelations about the origin of mass and matter–antimatter asymmetry.
