"New physics searches in ATLAS"

Boping Chen , Iowa State University
[Host: Chris Neu]

Standard Model(SM) is a very successful theory in particle physics, which can explain most of the high energy experiment. However, still there are many open questions for the SM, such as dark matter, dark energy and gravity interaction. One of the main goal for both ATLAS and CMS detector in LHC is to search for the new physics beyond the Standard model, to give us some hint for those open questions. This talk presents two analyses for the new physics search: 1: Search for the heavy resonance Z' decaying into a Higgs boson and a photon; 2: Search for lepton flavor violation Z->emu decay. Both of these two analyses use proton proton collision data set collected by ATLAS detector from 2015 to 2018. This talk also covers some upgrade study for the ATLAS inner tracker.
