Event Details

In July 2012 the CMS and ATLAS collaborations at CERN jointly announced the discovery of a new scalar boson, presumed to be the Higgs Boson, the final particle predicted by the standard model of particles and fields. Since that discovery, a tremendous amount of work has been done to more precisely determine the properties of this particle. Deviations from predictions may give insight into what new physics lies beyond the standard model. This talk will review the discovery of the Higgs and provide an overview of many of the measurements made over the last seven years and an update on the status of the Higgs particle as a probe of physics beyond the standard model.
