The project belongs to the INFN line of Standard Model phenomenology. Among its main purposes is the study of the impact of theoretical uncertainties in the measurement of Standard Model parameters, and the investigation of new physics scenarios with the identification of possible experimental signatures at the LHC and flavour factories.

Main topics of the team's activity:

  • heavy hadron properties, development and application of effective theories (i.e. HQET)
  • flavour physics within and beyond the Standard Model
  • phenomenological consequences of the conformal anomaly, possible dilaton interactions
  • holographic methods and phenomenological applications
