Boson collider for stress testing the Standard Model of elementary particles


Aram Apyan (Fermilab)

Event Details

The standard model of elementary particles has been extremely successful in describing the building blocks of matter and their interactions. The observation of a Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012 presented a new paradigm of precision physics aiming at the investigation of the Higgs mechanism. Since that time, many decay modes of the Higgs boson have been observed, indicating Higgs boson properties in good agreement with the simplest theoretical expectations. In this colloquium I will discuss a novel and powerful way of stress testing the standard model and studying the Higgs boson properties in the collisions of heavy vector bosons. My presentation will be illustrated with the newest results obtained from data collected at the Large Boson Collider
