Pre-SUSY 2014: School on Supersymmetry and Unification of Fundamental Interactions
Schuster Laboratory

The Pre-SUSY 2014 school will be held in the Bragg Lecture Theatre on the ground floor of the Schuster Laboratory Building, which houses Manchester University's School of Physics and Astronomy. The Schuster Lab (pictured above) is building number 54 on the campus map.

Lunches will be provided.

On Monday after the lectures there will be a welcome reception in the Neils Bohr Common Room on the 6th floor of the Schuster Building.

Pre-SUSY 2014 will be held from Tuesday 15 July through Saturday 19 July.

There will be six sets of four lectures each:
  • Higgs Physics by Carlos E. M. Wagner (University of Chicago, USA)

    These lectures will discuss Higgs phenomenology in the Standard Model and the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM).
  • Introduction to SUSY by Athanasios Dedes (University of Ioannina, Greece)

    These lectures will introduce the concept of SUSY using the superfield formalism, the concept of spontaneous symmetry breaking of SUSY, and model-building that includes the MSSM.
  • SUGRA and GUTs by Graham Ross (University of Oxford, United Kingdom)

    These lectures will give an introduction to Supergravity and discuss basic concepts of Grand Unified Theories, such as SU(5), flipped SU(5) and SO(10). Potential implications of GUTs and SUSY GUTs for the stability of the proton will be briefly discussed.
  • String Phenomenology by Ignatios Antoniadis (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland)

    These lectures will introduce basic concepts of string theory and discuss certain aspects of their phenomenology.
  • Particle Cosmology by Anupam Mazumdar (University of Lancaster, United Kingdom)

    These lectures will analyse microscopic theories for Dark Matter, Baryon Asummetry in the Universe and Inflation, and a connection of these topics will be made with the PLANCK results.
  • Collider Probes of SUSY by Rohini Godbole (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India)

    These lectures will report on the current status of collider phenomenology and the state of the art of experimental techniques in the quest for SUSY, including jet-boosted techniques, primarily at the LHC, but also at other high-energy colliders.
