After the late discovery at the LHC, a precise determination of the Higgs boson-like particle's properties is necessary to understand its role in electroweak symmetry breaking. I will discuss novel strategies to measure its spin and CP quantum numbers and future directions to improve the measurement of its couplings by phenomenologically separating the various Higgs boson production mechanisms. Finally, I will discuss LHC measurements of the symmetry breaking potential by investigating the production of multiple Higgs bosons, also in the context of pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone realizations of electroweak symmetry breaking.
The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
