Invitation to participate in The Loop-Verein
The high precision which can be reached at TESLA,
requires proper control of radiative corrections in
the standard model processes. Based on the work
which has been done for LEP, the theoretical analyses
must be developed further to cope with the increased
energy and luminosity at TESLA. This applies to QED
processes like Bhabha scattering for luminosity
measurements, the genuine electroweak sector such as
WW production, jet production in QCD, and many more
Since LEP operations will terminate soon, it is timely
to think about the development of this theoretical
programme for TESLA in order to ensure a smooth
transition to the new field without any interruption.
In accordance with Professor D.J.Miller, Chairman of
the ECFA/DESY LC Workshop, we therefore propose to
form a theoretical working group, briefly called
"The Loop-Verein", in which problems in this context
are identified and their solution is coordinated.
Even though cross-talk is natural, this group will
operate independently of the other WG's of the workshop
in which theorists cooperate with experimentalists very
closely. To discuss all issues, the Loop-Verein will
meet for the first time at the Strasbourg-Obernai session
of the ECFA/DESY LC Workshop in parallel to the Detector
Working Groups on Monday Oct.18. The meeting will be
prepared and coordinated by F.Jegerlehner. Experimental
advice will be given to the group by Klaus Moenig
We would like to invite you to this first meeting
of the Loop-Verein in order to help us shape the
theoretical programme and to identify your physics
interests in this context. Please tell us whether you
are interested in this cooperation on theoretical
problems of high-precision standard model physics.
Hoping very much to meet you in Strasbourg-Obernai!
With kind regards,
NB. Since we may not have reached all interested
theorists, please circulate this message among
your collaborators and friends.
