Note:

This proposal requests support for a program of research in experimental high energy physics. It includes studies of the Higgs boson, searches for new particles, detector improvement, large scale computing for the ATLAS Experiment at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN)in Geneva, Switzerland, and an initiative for a future experiment, the Silicon Detector Concept (SiD), at the proposed International Linear Collider, to be sited in Japan. Together, the ATLAS Experiment and SiD, can provide a deep understanding of the nature of the combination of two of natures fundamental forces: electromagnetism and the weak nuclear force, in addition to allowing discovery of associated new particles suggested by theory. In a new direction for the group, support is also requested for participation in the future Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) exploring the masses of the neutrinos that are involved in the weak nuclear interactions, and the ORKA Experiment that will search for signs of new physics in the rare decays of the K-meson, an elementary particle only produced in high energy collisions. Finally, we propose to carry out theoretical studies of the dark matter that exists in large quantities around and between galaxies, in terms of its interactions with astrophysical objects, and its possible creation in low energy high beam intensity experiments.
