Anomalous Gauge Couplings at the Large Hadron Collider

Prof. Ian Lewis (Hosted by Dev), University of Kansas

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has collected an enormous amount of data over two very successful runs.  Some of the most important measurements at the LHC concern the weak nuclear force.  The LHC is operating at the correct energy to directly produce the weak force mediators and probe our understanding of the structure of the Standard Model of particle physics at the highest energies to date.  In this talk I will review some of the most important measurements concerning the weak force and what we can learn from them.  I will also give an overview of the theoretical framework used to understand these measurements, and point out some important effects that have been neglected until recently.
