Physics Beyond the Standard Model
Standard Model (SM) of particle physics describes the fundamental interactions between elementary particles. It has been proven enormously successful over the years, explaining many features of our nature that we observe in experiments. However, SM can not be the final theory as it suffers from a few major drawbacks.
Observations of non-zero neutrino mass, irrefutable evidence for the existence of dark matter, matter-antimatter asymmetry, fine-tuning problems, etc., require intervention of beyond standard model (BSM) physics. Assuming the scale of new physics (NP) to be within the experimentally accessible range, the goal for us is to look for solutions to these problems and use all the resources at our disposal to find any signatures of BSM at the fundamental frontiers, i.e., cosmic, intensity, and energy frontier.
