ECT* Workshop on

Nucleon Matrix Elements
for New-Physics Searches

Goal

The goal of our workshop is to probe the intersections of QCD with new physics in the context of low-energy precision experiments with neutrons and protons. A wide variety of experiments of this type, including improved measurements of neutron beta decay, as well as searches for proton decay, neutron-antineutron oscillations, dark matter, and permanent electric dipole moments (EDMs) would benefit from a renewed look at the QCD theory inputs required to set limits on models of BSM physics. Our plan is to collect a group of phenomenologists, lattice gauge theorists, and a few key experimentalists, to discuss the constraints on theories probed by the experiments we consider and the manner in which these constraints are entwined with QCD physics, both perturbative and nonperturbative. We hope to help to advance our collective understanding of the theory needed to maximize the impact of low-energy, precision measurements in search of BSM physics.
