Title: Testing the Standard Model at the Precision Frontier with the Q weak Experiment

Abstract

The standard model of particle physics (SM) has been wildly successful describing the strong, electromagnetic, and weak forces between visible matter. Despite this success, there is a host of phenomena it fails to describe, including neutrino oscillations, gravity, dark matter, and baryon asymmetry. Something is missing—the theory is not complete. This conviction has compelled physicists to develop ever-more-stringent tests in the hope of finding cracks in the SM that could point to where the beyond-the-standard-model (BSM) physics might lie. Direct searches at high-energy colliders have yielded no evidence for some of the most intriguing possibilities, like supersymmetry, and have not been able to shed much light on where to look next.
