The search of a deeper understanding of our universe at the
Large Hadron Collider: the World’s Largest Particle Accelerator

With the start of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, particle physics entered a new era. The LHC will provide a deeper understanding of the universe and the insights gained could change our view of the world, and the talk will present some of the reasons for the excitement surrounding the LHC. The LHC is expected to yield insights into the origin of mass, the nature of dark matter and the existence of hidden extra dimensions. The talk will address the exciting physics prospects offered by the LHC, present latest results with emphasis on the discovery of a ‘Higgs-like’ Boson in 2012, and also a look forward.


Organised within the XXI. International Workshop on Deep-Inelastic Scattering and Related Subjects, Marseille, Palais des Congres Parc Chanot, April 22-26, 2013
