After the Higgs Boson Discovery: What Do We Know and What's Left to Learn?
Friday November 8, 2013
C. E. Kenneth Mees Professor of Physics
University of Rochester
|Series:||Physics and Astronomy Colloquium|
|Abstract:||The discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider is a triumph for particle physics and, it would seem, for the Standard Model (SM). But the Higgs sector of the SM is unsatisfactory from a theoretical point of view and leaves some important questions unanswered. In this talk I review what we've learned from the Higgs discovery and discuss prospects for theories of physics beyond the Standard Model.|
|Location:||Room 125, Dane Smith Hall|
Refreshments will be available before the colloquium, at 3:45 pm, in the lobby of Dane Smith Hall.
