Understanding proton complexity and finding cracks in the Standard Model
The search for new physics in Large Hadron Collider typically involves looking at various Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) models and comparing their predictions to that of LHC data. To do a search successfully, the Standard Model background should first be accurately modeled by Monte Carlo Generators. While there have been many years of effort put onto this task, there are some sectors in our computational predictions that still need work. What role do precision measurements have in improving the modelling of background? How do they help us understand the complexity of a proton, how they break and form new particles that we detect? How good are our current modelling capabilities in describing reality? In this talk, I want to go through some precision measurements in the LHC and some recent improvements in the state of the art modelling of some challenging processes where we expect to find new physics.
