The Higgs boson: past, present & future
The long-anticipated Higgs boson particle was discovered at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN in 2012. Six years later, work has just started to upgrade the LHC to even higher brightness. But what is the point in upgrading the LHC now? This talk will discuss the physics behind the Higgs boson and the potential future discoveries of the upgraded LHC.
