Physics and Astronomy Colloquium

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

Presented by Lynne Orr C. E. Kenneth Mees Professor of Physics University of Rochester

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.
