DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Maria Ubiali (DAMTP\, U. of Cambridge)\nA major rece
nt breakthrough in global fits of the quark and gluon structure of the pro
ton has been the inclusion of a significant amount of precision LHC measur
ements. While these data provide important constraints\, specially on the
poorly-know gluon and antiquark PDFs\, it is crucial to avoid any contamin
ation from potential beyond the Standard Model (BSM) effects that could be
present in the high E or pT tails of the fitted distributions. This probl
em is particularly acute for LHC data from Runs II and III\, as well as fo
r the future high-luminosity run\, where many PDF-sensitive observables wi
ll reach into the few TeV region. In this talk\, I present a first quantit
ative study aiming to study whether or not BSM effects can be reabsorbed i
nto the fitted PDFs\, as well as the possibility of using the global QCD f
it to simultaneously constrain both the proton structure and BSM dynamics.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Rafael Delgado López (Technische Universität Münc

metry breaking sector is studied. We use the Electroweak Chiral Lagrangian
(EChL) and the Inverse Amplitude Method (IAM). And generate a MadGraph v5
UFO model\, which includes the beyond Standard Model (BSM) interactions v
ia effective vertices in the framework of a Proca Lagrangian. The constant
s of the Proca Lagrangian are adjusted to resemble those of the unitarized
matrix elements. This project is a continuation of a previous analysis of
the elastic scattering $w^+z\\to w^+z$\, extended to include processes in
volving $w^+w^-\\to w^+w^-$. Several channels (fully leptonic and semilept
onic) are being considered. Our final goal would be providing a complete a
nd tested MadGraph v5 UFO model for the phenomenology of Vector Boson Scat
tering of the EChL unitarized via IAM\, for the phenomenology and experime
ntal community.\n\nhttps://agenda.irmp.ucl.ac.be/event/3283/contributions/

s\, i.e.\, a complete set of independent operators. I will present BasisGe
n\, a Python package for the automatic generation of operator bases in a g
eneral setting: it accepts any semisimple symmetry group and fields in any
of its finite dimensional irreducible representations. It takes into acco

s of motion. BasisGen is also fast: this is achieved with an implementatio

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Johann Brehmer (New York University)\nAn important p

akes them challenging for traditional analysis methods. We discuss the und
erlying problem of “likelihood-free” inference and present powerful ne
w analysis techniques that combine physics insights\, statistical methods\
, and the power of machine learning. We have developed MadMiner\, a new Py
thon package that makes it straightforward to apply these techniques. In e
xample LHC problems we show that the new approach lets us put stronger con
straints on theory parameters than established methods\, demonstrating its
potential to improve the new physics reach of the LHC legacy measurements
. While we present techniques optimized for particle physics\, the likelih
ood-free inference formulation is much more general\, and these ideas are
part of a broader movement that is changing scientific inference in fields
as diverse as cosmology\, genetics\, and epidemiology.\n\nhttps://agenda.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Juan José Sanz-Cillero (Universidad Complutense de
Madrid - IPARCOS)\nDirect searches for New Physics states have given so fa
r negative results. There is a mass gap between SM fields and possible new
states. The observed SM symmetry pattern and this mass gap justifies the
use of electroweak effective Lagrangians. Implications of new\, higher sca
les can be analyzed through next-to-leading order corrections to the Higgs
Effective Theory\, HEFT (also denoted as EW Effective Theory or EW Chiral
Lagrangian). There are three main ingredients in our present analysis: 1s
t\, an approximate chiral symmetry which spontaneously breaks down into cu
stodial symmetry\, as it occurs in the SM\; 2nd\,a non-linear realization
of the EW symmetry breaking with a singlet Higgs and an assumed strongly-c
oupled UV-completion\; 3rd\, a high-energy Lagrangian which incorporates a
set of new heavy states in addition to the SM degrees of freedom. We cons
ider spin 0\, 1/2 and 1 resonances\, allowing for new possible coloured st
ates. By integrating out these heavy resonances\, we study the pattern of
low-energy constants among the light fields. We then perform a phenomenolo
gical analysis of the low-energy constants and find that resonances with m
asses in the few TeV range are perfectly compatible with current experimen
tal constraints on the low-energy parameters. The analysis of LHC diboson
production through vector boson scattering (VBS) and Drell-Yan (DY) mechan
isms shows that resonances in the 1.5 - 3 TeV range can easily and natural
ly evade all present experimental bounds: within this framework\, future r
uns and higher luminosities will be required to be able to separate these
resonances from the SM background. In the last part\, we will quickly dis
cuss possible scenarios with new physics heavy states around the TeV scale
which do not couple directly to the SM fermions\, only indirectly via the
SM bosonic sector. This leads to an important suppression of the fermioni
c operators in the low-energy HEFT (bilinear and four-fermion operators) i
n comparison with the purely bosonic ones. This naturally suppresses VBS a
nd DY\, while leaving an imprint in SM boson measurements accessible to fu
ture experimental runs (e.g.\, the oblique S parameter).\n\nhttps://agenda

e consider the possibility of an enhancement due to the contribution of St
andard Model dimension-six effective operators. We show that there are onl
y two relevant operators for this process that are not yet (strongly) cons
trained by other data. We perform a sensitivity study on the operator coef

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Javier Virto (TUM)\nExtraction of the Cabibbo-Kobaya
shi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix from flavour observables can be affected by physi
cs beyond the Standard Model (SM). We provide a general roadmap to take th
is into account\, which we apply to the case of the Standard Model Effecti
ve Field Theory (SMEFT). We choose a set of four input observables that de
termine the four Wolfenstein parameters\, and discuss how the effects of d
imension-six operators can be included in their definition. We provide num
erical values and confidence intervals for the CKM parameters\, and compar
e them with the results of CKM fits obtained in the SM context. Our approa
ch allows one to perform general SMEFT analyses in a consistent fashion\,
independently of any assumptions about the way new physics affects flavour
observables. We discuss a few examples illustrating how our approach can
be implemented in practice.\n\nhttps://agenda.irmp.ucl.ac.be/event/3283/co

s couplings precipitate unitarity violation in a multitude of processes. T
hese include\, in particular\, high multiplicity (2 → more than 2) proce
sses involving longitudinal vectors\, where unitarity violation manifests
in cross-sections that grow too quickly with energy. Using EFT―which pro
vides a transparent and systematic parameterization of the energy growth
―we explore how to exploit this energy growth to measure/constrain anoma
lous Higgs couplings. In certain (important) channels\, these high-energy
probes turn out to be both complementary and competitive with standard on-
shell measurements. Additionally\, our exploratory analysis contains many
exciting avenues for refinements and improvements for both theorists and e
xperimentalists.\n\nhttps://agenda.irmp.ucl.ac.be/event/3283/contributions

t to establish the reach to possible deviations of the Higgs couplings fro

our analysis is grounded on the observation that deviations from the Stand
ard Model are characterised by an energy growing behaviour in the amplitud
es\, so that at higher energies New Physics signatures appear stronger and
compete with the loss of statistics. In the context of the High Luminosit
y LHC we have considered the process pp > LLLL jj\, where L is a longitudi
nally polarised vector boson\, to constraint possible deviations of the Hi
ggs self interaction.\nFrom the same perspective\, we have also studied th

o beam polarisation is used to better constraint New Physics effects in th

n the context of the Standard Model effective field theory (SMEFT)\, we st
udy the LHC sensitivity to four fermion operators involving heavy quarks b
y employing cross section measurements in the $t\\overline{t}b\\overline{b
}$ final state. Starting from the measurement of total rates\, we progress
ively exploit kinematical information and machine learning techniques to o
ptimize the projected sensitivity at the end of Run III. Indeed\, in final
states with high multiplicity containing inter-correlated kinematical inf
ormation\, multi-variate methods provide a robust way of isolating the reg
ions of phase space where the SMEFT contribution is enhanced. We also show
that training for multiple output classes allows for the discrimination b
etween operators mediating the production of top quarks in different helic
ity states. Our projected sensitivities not only constrain a host of new d
irections in the SMEFT parameter space but also improve on existing limits
demonstrating that\, on one hand\, $t\\overline{t}b\\overline{b}$ product
ion is an indispensable component in a future global fit for top quark int
eractions in the SMEFT\, and on the other\, multi-class machine learning a
lgorithms can be a valuable tool for interpreting LHC data in this framewo

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Juan Rojo (VU Amsterdam and Nikhef)\nWe present a no
vel framework for carrying out global analyses of the Standard Model Effec
tive Field Theory (SMEFT) at dimension-six: SMEFiT. This approach is based
on the Monte Carlo replica method for deriving a faithful estimate of the
experimental and theoretical uncertainties and enables one to construct t
he probability distribution in the space of the SMEFT degrees of freedom.
As a proof of concept of the SMEFiT methodology\, we present a first study
of the constraints on the SMEFT provided by top quark production measurem
ents from the LHC. Our analysis includes more than 30 independent measurem
ents from 10 different processes at 8 and 13 TeV such as inclusive top-qua
rk pair and single-top production and the associated production of top qua
rks with weak vector bosons and the Higgs boson. State-of-the-art theoreti
cal calculations are adopted both for the Standard Model and for the SMEFT
contributions\, where in the latter case NLO QCD corrections are included
for the majority of processes. We derive bounds for the 34 degrees of fre
edom relevant for the interpretation of the LHC top quark data and compare
these bounds with previously reported constraints. Our study illustrates
the significant potential of LHC precision measurements to constrain physi
cs beyond the Standard Model in a model-independent way\, and paves the wa
y towards a global analysis of the SMEFT.\n\nhttps://agenda.irmp.ucl.ac.be

s\, neutrons\, nuclei and tau leptons. We recast these data as tree-level
constraints on 4-fermion operators in the Standard Model Effective Field T
heory (SMEFT) where the SM Lagrangian is extended by dimension-6 operators
. We allow all independent dimension-6 operators to be simultaneously pres
ent with an arbitrary flavor structure. The results are presented as a mul
ti-dimensional likelihood function in the space of dimension-6 Wilson coef
ficients\, which retains information about the correlations.\n\nhttps://ag
