Higgs Discovery : Implications for Particle Physics
The LHC has recently discovered a Higgs-like resonance with a mass of about 125 GeV. It may be the missing
element of the so-called Standard Model of particle physics. This model was proposed a few decades ago, and, after
the inclusion of neutrino masses, describes in an accurate way all measured observables not involving gravity.
We shall discuss what are the possible implications of the Higgs Discovery for particle physics and, in particular, for
theoretical and experimental physics High Energy Physics in the coming years.
Refreshments will be served in CP 177 at 3:15 PM
