After the Higgs Boson Discovery: What Do We Know and What's Left to Learn?

Friday November 8, 2013
4:00 pm

 Presenter:  Lynne Orr
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.
 Host:  Sally Seidel
 Location:  Room 125, Dane Smith Hall
