The Force Awakens:Quantum Collisions

Large Hadron Collider experiments at CERN have discovered the Higgs boson, the final missing piece

of the Standard Model of particle physics. In this highly interactive talk, Professor Ben Allanach

(Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge) will describe

how the accelerator and its experiments work generally, and also give more specific details about the

discovery of the Higgs boson. Based on this information, he will then help the audience to

understand the Standard Model, a highly successful quantum field theory.
