Originating Calendar
Physics - Colloquium

The discovery of a Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider marks both the culmination of a decades-long quest for the final piece of the Standard Model and the dawn of a new era in the search for more fundamental physics. Yet the discovery of the Higgs poses far more questions than it answers, shaping the ongoing physics program at the LHC and motivating the next generation of particle accelerators. In this talk, I’ll illustrate connections between the Higgs boson and open questions in particle physics, survey recent theoretical and experimental progress in Higgs physics, and discuss the prospects for proposed Higgs factories that would succeed the LHC.
