Exploring the Particle Universe at the Large Hadron Collider

Prof. (and Chair) Meenakshi Narain, Brown University

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Switzerland, is currently the world's most powerful particle accelerator. During 2015-2018 (Run 2 era), it has delivered an unprecedented amount of proton-proton collision data at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. I will present some of the highlights from its extensive physics program ranging from studies of the Higgs Boson properties to the searches for physics in unchartered territories beyond those predicted by the Standard Model. In addition, starting around 2027+, the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) will deliver proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 14 TeV. I will summarize the exciting new hardware developments which are underway in CMS and the physics opportunities they open up at the HL-LHC.
