LHCb status, first physics and discovery potential


Steinkamp, O (2010). LHCb status, first physics and discovery potential. In: Kruger 2010: Workshop on Discovery Physics at the LHC, Mpumalanga, South Africa, 5 December 2010 - 10 December 2010, 024.

Abstract

The LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will perform precision measurements of CP violating processes and rare decays of B mesons and other hadrons containing b or c quarks. Of particular interest are observables that exhibit high sensitivity to New Physics
through possible contributions from new heavy particles in loop diagrams. By searching for New Physics indirectly by studying the effect of virtual particles in internal loops, LHCb will extend the discovery potential to masses far in excess of those accessible in direct searches at the LHC.
In this contribution, a brief overview is given of the LHCb performance and running experience from the first year of LHC operation, some early physics results are presented, and the discovery potential in selected key channels is illustrated. More detailed accounts of the detector performance and of specific physics topics are given in several other LHCb contributions to these proceedings.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
