Electroweak Physics with the ATLAS detector – From Detector Commissioning to Constraining the Standard Model

When: Monday, March 05, 2012 at 11:00 am
Where: DA 114
Speaker: Alberto Belloni
Sponsor: Physics Colloquium

This talk presents the most recent measurements of electroweak physics at ATLAS, with focus on W and WW physics. The current results, already limited by systematic uncertainties, provide important constraints on parton-distribution-function fits and a unique opportunity to study electroweak interactions at an energy scale unprecedented at colliders. A view on the current status and prospects for future measurements of electroweak physics, including H->WW, is also presented.
