The search for the origin of mass
We do not know what gives mass to elementary particles. However, I will explain why after years of experimental and theoretical research we have extreme confidence that the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will tell us. The most famous and simplest idea to generate mass is a single Higgs boson. I will present the case for and against the single Higgs boson theory, and argue why revolutionary understanding and discoveries are likely under any eventuality.
Our General Interest Seminars are an opportunity for distinguished speakers to present new research in physics and related areas. The material presented is suitable for undergraduate level upwards and all members of the School are welcome to attend..
