IV International Conference on Particle Physics and Astrophysics
The 4th International Conference on Particle Physics and Astrophysics (ICPPA-2018) will be held in Moscow, Russia, (from the 22nd to the 26th of October). The conference is organized by the National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI”. The aim of the Conference is to share scientific knowledge, to promote contacts between scientists and to develop new ideas in fundamental research. We will bring together experts and young scientists working in experimental and theoretical areas of nuclear physics, particle physics (including astroparticle physics), and cosmology. Most recent results from the modern experiments in these areas and advanced detector technology development will be presented and discussed.
After the Higgs boson discovery at the LHC, a lot of additional measurements should be performed to make sure that the observed particle is the Standard Model Higgs boson. These measurements include cross sections measurements, couplings measurements, studies of the interaction vertex structures etc. One of the most perspective things to study is the kinematics of the production jets, associated with the Higgs boson. It is demonstrated, that the kinematic correlations of such jets can be used to distinguish different production channels of Higgs boson: gluon-gluon fusion (ggF) and vector boson fusion (VBF). Such separation is important due to the fact, that possible beyond Standard Model contributions in ggF and VBF channels lead to different physics effects, which should be taken into account separately in direct BSM searches.
