Higgs update, HCP 2012

Last week, Seth and I met up to discuss the latest results from the Hadron Collider Physics (HCP) Symposium and what they mean for the Higgs searches. We have moved past discovery and now we are starting to perform precision measurements. Is this the Standard Model Higgs boson, or some other Higgs boson? Should we look forward to a whole new set of discoveries around the corner, or is the Higgs boson the final word for new physics that the LHC has to offer? We’ll find out more in the coming months!

    I am enjoying these “post-match analysis” videos of HEP conferences. Are you going to continue to shoot in the CERN canteen garden regardless of weather? :-p

    • Come rain or shine… we’ll find somewhere that looks nice! I try to give people different views of CERN (the main auditorium, building 40, the garden etc) but this time both Seth and I were very busy and we had to find somewhere fast and convenient. We wanted to use the main cafeteria, but it was too noisy and backlit, which was a shame. We had print outs of the results, and we had a hard time keeping them dry when we sat outside!

    The English-speaker chap seemed to be freezing. This was caused by a statistical phenomena called Fall. It can be ameliorated, as evidenced by the non-freezing American-speakeer who had the foresight to wrap animal skins around himself.

    Good luck finding your Higgs Bozo although I can’t see why so much effort is put into finding a missing clown. Have you looked behind the couch

    Very interesting discussion, but I found it difficult to hear due to the buffeting of the wind. I would far rather have a boring view and ease of listening, than vice versa!
