Abstract

The discovery of the Higgs boson at 126 GeV at CERN was a milestone for fundamental physics. However to date no other new discoveries have been made. This brings new urgency to the questions: what is the origin of Dark Matter? and why is there no large scale antimatter in the Universe? These questions require that new, as yet-undiscovered principles of nature exist. This project will search for these by investigating matter-antimatter asymmetries with unprecedented precision at the Belle II experiment, currently under construction in Japan. The project’s contribution to Belle II will be to develop software to rapidly and automatically calibrate and process the hundreds of petabytes of data g..
