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.

... Recently though, other experiments in America have brought the Standard Model into question through the possible signs of a new quantum force...
