- I am looking for a Layman's terms explanation of loop corrections, EFT, and dijets, please and thank you!
I am currently a senior physics major working on my undergrad, and I just began a new research position at my school, and am teaching myself particle physics because the group I am working with is looking to expand the SM, and my project specifically is to implement Monte Carlo simulations of particle collisions in hopes of finding answers that bring us closer to solving the whole dark matter issue. My question is: can someone please, in Layman's terms, explain what a loop correction is? I would be very appreciative! I actually would also like the same type of explanation for EFT, and dijets (I am assuming this is the result of particle collisions, in which there are two jets for particles and anti-particles, or according to their charge, etc.), if possible. Thank you so much for your help!
