Craig McNeile is part of the supervision team.

]]>Emily Prestige has just graduated from the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics. The paper is based on her final year project.

In 2012, the Higgs boson, the missing piece of The Standard Model of Particle Physics, that describes the interactions of all known fundamental particles, was discovered by the CERN experiments at the Large Hadrons Collider (LHC) in Switzerland.While the discovery is a milestone in our understanding of the fundamental laws of Nature, a number of experimental and theoretical issues prove that the model is not complete. Theoretical physicists develop models that solve these puzzles and are then tested by experiments.One interesting possibility that would solve a number of these issues is that the Higgs boson is actually not a fundamental particle but built out of some new particles bounded by a new interaction. The mechanism is borrowed from a well known composite particle : the proton, which turns out to be made of more fundamental particles called quarks bounded by one of the three interactions described by the Standard Model of Particle Physics: the strong interaction.

The project entitled : Composite Higgs Phenomenology at the LHC, aims at calculating the properties of the Higgs boson in a composite Higgs scenario and exhibit experimental signatures of these models at the LHC.

organized by MIT. Due to COVID restrictions the conference was

online. Three staff members and two PhD students from the Centre for

Mathematical Sciences at Plymouth attended the conference, and they presented talks on topics, such as understanding the structure of the Higgs

boson and predictions for properties of new types of particles in QCD. ]]>
