"KEK-PH lectures and workshops" is a form of KEK-PH workshop series at the time of Covid-19.

The annual KEK Theory Meeting on Particle Physics Phenomenology (KEK-PH) covers many topics in Particle Physics and Cosmology, from the Standard Model and models beyond it to particle cosmology and astrophysics. At the time of Covid-19, the KEK theory center is organizing an on-line lecture and workshop series, "KEK-PH lectures and workshops 2022."

1st KEK-PH lectures on "Precision measurement of W boson mass"

The CDF collaboration has recently reported the W boson mass which has about 7-sigma deviation from the Standard Model prediction. We will have invited lectures on precise measurement of W boson mass on 10th May. We will discuss QCD effects relevant to the recent measurement by CDF and discuss future measurements at an e+e- collider. New physics interpretation of the recent result will be also discussed. 


May 10th (Tue.)  

9:00-9:50: Dr. Joshua Isaacson (Fermilab), "ResBos and CDF W boson mass measurement"

10:00-10:50: Prof. Chien-Peng Yuan (Michigan State University), "The structure of the proton: The CT18 QCD (and QED) Global Analysis"

10:50-11:40: Prof. Graham Wilson (University of Kansas), "Prospects and Perspectives on mW Measurements at a Future e+e- Collider"

16:00-16:50: Prof. Sven Heinemeyer (IFT (CSIC, Madrid)), "Prediction of the W-boson mass in BSM models"
