Particle physics after the Higgs boson discovery: opportunities for the Large Hadron Collider
The first run of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN brought the discovery of the Higgs boson, an apparently elementary scalar particle with a mass of
the avatar of the mechanism that hides the electroweak symmetry. A new round of experimentation is beginning, with the energy of the proton–proton colliding beams raised to
per beam, from at the end of the first run. This article summarises what we have learned about the Higgs boson, and calls attention
to some issues that will be among our central concerns in the near future.
