Theory seminar: Beyond the Standard Model with global fits: then, now and tomorrow

Pat Scott , Imperial College London [slides]

Searches for particle physics beyond the Standard Model come in many forms, from searches for new particles at accelerators to gamma-ray and neutrino telescopes, cosmic ray detectors and ultra-clean experiments deep underground.  Efforts to combine multiple search channels in 'global fits' to new physics scenarios typically consider only a subset of the available channels, and apply them to a very small range of possible theories. Astroparticle searches in particular are usually only included in a very approximate way, if at all.  In this talk I will review recent progress in improving this situation, and preview some of the future developments and challenges in this field.

Note the time!
