"Fundamental studies with pions and muons"

Dr Dinko Pocanic, University of Virginia
Wednesday, October 10, 4:00 PM - Nuclear Science Seminar
NSCL Lecture Hall

Although known to us for over 60 years, pions and muons still harbor key questions concerning details of their properties that have not been fully answered. These questions have come into focus as particle and nuclear physics confront all available experimental results with detailed calculations of the Standard Model, and seek to find evidence of processes beyond the SM. The precision frontier at low energies thus provides complementary information to that collected at current high-energy colliders. The seminar will discuss recent and forthcoming results of a program of measurements of rare pion and muon decays at PSI.
