Flavor at the Terascale

DESY Auditorium, 17.00 h

Flavor physics studies, i.e. studies concerning the generational structure of matter, have identified the standard model as the dominant source of quark flavor violation (modulo "anomalies"). This has strong implications for the physics at the TeV scale.
We review the status of flavor physics and discuss how one could discover a breakdown of the standard model in flavor physics and understand flavor in and beyond the standard model.
We cover opportunities for the forthcoming searches at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments ATLAS/CMS and LHCb, as well as dedicated low energy precision facilities.
