The H boson and Beyond at the LHC — Lost Loves, New Hopes, and the Wall of Ignorance

Yves Sirois (Ecole Polytechnique) — March 31, 2016

The experiments at the LHC have now begun since 2015 to collect proton-proton collision data at the high centre-of-mass energies of 13 TeV. In this seminar, I shall review the very latest LHC results, starting with the new precision measurements of the Standard Model—like H boson at 125 GeV in run I at 7-8 TeV, expanding to the first run II results at 13 TeV, the consequences for particle physics, and to the new searches and expectations for the forthcoming high luminosity runs.
