    Bottomonium at the Super-B factories: QCD and new physics

    In the last 15 years, several experiments contributed to an explosion of new results on heavy QCD bound states. Today, we potentially stand at the beginning of a new wave of discoveries, with the Belle II experiment starting its data taking, BESIII moving forward into its program and the LHC experiments moving into their next phase. These new experiments, collecting much larger statistics, will not only allow to constrain the low energy QCD models, but also to study rare decays sensitive to new physics scenarios.

    In this seminar, I will first outline the basic ideas and the status of the bottomonium physics, and then describe more in detail the potential of the measurement that will be performed at the Belle II experiment, ranging from the spectroscopy of the tetraquark-like states to the study of New-physics signatures in rare and forbidden decays.
