Johns Hopkins Workshop 2014: Topics
The Higgs discovery is not only the final step in our discovery of the Standard Model of particle physics, it also
shows that quantum field theory can fully describe the fundamental interactions of elementary particles.
With a light Higgs boson the gauge theory at he heart of the Standard Model does not have an ultraviolet
cutoff scale, but still has experimental as well as theoretical shortcomings. We will have theoretical and
experimental talks (35+10 minutes each) on the general topics:
 New physics in the Higgs sector
 New physics and particle cosmology
 Wrong measurements and their theory postdictions (working title)
 Extrapolations to high scales given the Higgs
 Future experimental directions
