Low-energy experiments which would identify departures from the Standard Model (SM) rely either on the unexpected observation of symmetry breaking, such as of CP or B, or on an observed significant deviation from a precise SM prediction. We discuss examples of each search strategy, and show that low-energy experiments can open windows on physics far beyond accessible collider energies. We consider how the use of a frequentist analysis framework can redress the impact of theoretical uncertainties in such searches – and how lattice QCD can help control them.
