Title: Doubly charmed baryons and the discovery of Xi_cc++ at LHCb
Abstract: In the summer of 2017, LHCb announced the discovery of the doubly charmed baryon Xi_cc++, which was the first definitive observation of a baryon containing two heavy flavored quarks. This result became the most widely publicized result from the LHC in 2017. This seminar will discuss the physics of doubly heavy baryons, the controversial history of experimental searches for them, and LHCb’s recent discovery of Xi_cc++.
