Steven Weinberg reflects on winning the Breakthrough Prize, effective field theory, and the mass-hierarchy problem.
The collaboration has taken an encouraging step towards observing a process with access to the key unknown parameter in the shape of the Brout-Englert-Higgs potential: the self-coupling λ.
The move to constrain effective field theories rather than signal strengths for couplings marks a new, more comprehensive phase in Standard Model tests at the LHC.
The ATLAS collaboration today reported a 3.2σ excess over background of H → ℓℓγ decay candidates with dilepton mass less than 30 GeV.
An electron–positron Higgs factory following the LHC would significantly expand our knowledge about this unique and mysterious elementary scalar.
Ivo van Vulpen’s popular book isn’t an airy pamphlet cashing in on the 2012 discovery, but a realistic representation of what it’s like to be a particle physicist.
The ATLAS and CMS collaborations have not only discovered a new particle, argues Yosef Nir, but also laid bare the underpinnings of electroweak interactions and uncovered the first evidence for a new ...
The first evidence for the coupling of the Higgs boson to a second-generation fermion has been reported at the LHC.
Advances in Higgs, flavour and neutrino physics were among the highlights of ICHEP 2020, writes Mark Thomson.
The ATLAS collaboration has made the first observation of the photo-production of W-boson pairs.
