Description: Axion-like particles (ALPs), which are gauge-singlets under the Standard Model (SM), appear in many well-motivated extensions of the SM. Describing the interactions of ALPs with SM fields by means of an effective Lagrangian, and taking into account the possibility of a macroscopic ALP decay length, we show that large regions of so far unconstrained parameter space can be explored in searches for the exotic, on-shell Higgs and Z-boson decays h—>Za, h—>aa and Z—>gamma a in Run-2 of the LHC with an integrated luminosity of 300 fb^{-1}. This includes the parameter space in which ALPs can explain the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. Considering subsequent ALP decays into photons and charged leptons, we show that the LHC provides unprecedented sensitivity to the ALP-photon and ALP-lepton couplings in the mass region above a few MeV. We also discuss prospects for constraining the ALP parameter space at future colliders. (2:00 PM, 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar)
