The speaker, Ajinkya Kamat (Ph.D.
student), will discuss what the Nobel prize winning Brout-Englert-Higgs
mechanism is and how it leads to the masses of elementary particles in Nature.
He will also talk about what remains to be done on the theoretical front beyond
the discovery of the Higgs boson at LHC and what is being done in that direction
by research group that the speaker is a member of. This will be a
semi-technical talk accessible to science and engineering students.
Refreshments will be available.
