Understanding the LHC

637. WE-Heraeus-Seminar

12 Feb - 15 Feb 2017

Among the huge and growing amount of LHC data, we found a Higgs, but have yet to understand which one.

Against this backdrop, the workshop brings together present and future experts of electroweak symmetry breaking, to explain, discuss, and learn about the numerous aspects − from experiment to theory − approaches − from perturbative to strongly interacting all the way to quantum chromodynamics − and methods.

Topics include

  • origin of mass

  • electroweak  symmetry breaking

  • standard model and beyond

  • perturbative interactions

  • strong interactions

  • chiral symmetry breaking

  • quantum chromodynamics
