Precision fits for the LHC and beyond

Abstract:

In this thesis we consider the phenomenology of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT), with reference to the ongoing experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Our emphasis is on constraining free parameters of the theories, such that the precision of theoretical calculations for the LHC are able to match the high level of experimental precision now available.

To this end, we discuss two fitting frameworks which aim to be robust and...
