Workshop on QED in Weak Decays


Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics, Edinburgh


Di Carlo, Matteo

This workshop aims to bring together both experimental and theoretical experts working on QED corrections specifically to weak decays. The goal of this workshop is twofold. First, theorists working with methods of scalar QED, light-cone sum rules, chiral perturbation theory, SCET and lattice methods all have different ways of tackling the subtleties when dealing with QED corrections to weak decays. This workshop aims to transfer knowledge between theorists from these different communities, and we envision new collaborations to emerge from it. Second, since QED corrections are handled with Monte Carlo programs such as PHOTOS in experiment, meaningful predictions (especially in a collider environment) necessitate close interaction of theorists and experimentalists. We aim to develop strategies to make better use of the theoretical efforts and thereby improve the experimental analyses.
