The field of particle physics is entering an exciting new era. While the need for new physics beyond the Standard Model is still compelling, the lack of observation of such signals challenges our preconceived notions of what the new physics should look like. It is time for fresh approaches to the longstanding puzzles of the field. A wide array of tools from a broad perspective must be used so that new physics is indeed properly searched for and eventually discovered. These new developments will be the focus of the school, whose series of lectures will start from basics and reach the cutting edge of issues and results. Topics will include: new ideas for dark matter theory and experiment, new solutions to the weak scale, precision measurements for fundamental physics, machine learning, advances in cosmology, and future tests of the Standard Model.

 

Speakers:

Nima Arkani-Hamed, The Institute for Advanced Study

Dmitry Budker, University of California Berkeley / Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz

Timothy Cohen, University of Oregon

Rouven Essig, Stony Brook University

Yuval Grossman, Cornell University

Jared Kaplan, Johns Hopkins University

Ely Kovetz, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

David Gross

General Director

Theoretical Physics

David J. Gross is the Chancellor’s Chair professor of theoretical physics and the former director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received his Ph.D. in 1966 from the University of California, Berkeley. Before joining the Kavli Institute, he was the Thomas Jones professor of mathematical physics at Princeton University.

Gross was awarded the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics, along with H. David Politzer and Frank Wilczek, “for the discovery of asymptotic freedom in the theory of the strong interaction.” His other awards include the Sakurai Prize, a MacArthur fellowship, the Dirac Medal, the Oskar Klein Medal, the Harvey Prize, the High Energy and Particle Physics Prize of the European Physical Society, and the Grande Médaille of the French Academy of Sciences. He holds honorary degrees from institutions in the US, Britain, France Israel, Argentina, Brazil, Belgium, China, the Philippines and Cambodia. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the Indian Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2018, he became President-Elect of the American Physical Society.
