LHC / ILC Study Group

The aim of the LHC / ILC Study Group is to investigate how analyses at the LHC could profit from results obtained at the ILC and vice versa. It is furthermore studied how informations obtained at both machines can most effectively be put together in order to explore the physics of weak and strong electroweak symmetry breaking, supersymmetric models, new gauge theories, models with extra dimensions, and electroweak and QCD precision physics.
