Event details

​Floccinihilipilification is defined by the Oxford English dictionary as "the action or habit of estimating something as worthless".
By cutting away worthless new physics models, we are left with a list of possibly valuable ones. To this end, we first describe a bottom-up list of all anomaly-free semi-simple gauge extensions of the Standard Model whose fermionic content is that of the Standard Model plus three right-handed neutrinos. Secondly, we discuss the B3-L2 Z' solution to b->s l+ l- anomalies, and whether or not recent LHCb data has rendered it worthless.
