Belle II: New Physics and the Next Generation

by Prof. Thomas Browder (UH Manoa)

Thursday, 28 September 2017 from to (Pacific/Honolulu)
at Watanabe Hall ( 112 )
I will review the current status and physics motivation of Belle II, the upcoming Super B Factory class experiment starting soon at KEK in Tsukuba, Japan. Belle II will become the leading experiment for exploration of the physics of B mesons, D mesons and tau leptons. Recent results now suggest that flavor physics could be an alternative path to breaking the Standard Model of particle physics.

(This talk is based on a lecture given at the US Belle II summer school in Oxford, Mississippi).
