That Spin 0 Boson Changes Everything: The Future of the Energy Frontier in Particle Physics

Speaker: 
Raymond Brock
Institution: 
Michigan State

The "Higgs Boson" discovery requires us to think differently about planning for the future of Particle Physics. While the decades-long confirmation of the Standard Model itself an historic episode, as a dynamical model of nature it is unhelpful as a clear guide to the future. I’ll review the features of the Standard Model that make it superb, I’ll point out why it’s frustrating, and I’ll describe the hints that motivate us in the coming decades.
