Testing the Higgs Sector

Event Type: 
Conference
Location: 
Aula Polvani

With the discovery of a light, likely fundamental Higgs boson our understanding of particle physics has entered a new era. We now know that a perturbatively renormalizable quantum field theory describes elementary particles possibly to very high energy scales. For the LHC this means that we are switching from a Higgs discovery mode to a mode where measurements of Higgs properties are an prime window to physics beyond the Standard Model. I will discuss a some of these measurements, including their theory background, their phenomenological challenges, their current status, and their prospects for Run II.
