Recent results from the Large Hadron Collider - possible hints for physics beyond the standard model?
After a two year shut down The Large Hadron Collider is finally back in business,
and at a higher energy than ever before. First results from this year have just been published,
and next year much more data will be collected. The high energy frontier is just around the corner.
In the talk I will introduce the field of particles physics, and the experimental tools used to study it.
I will talk about the Large Hadron Collider, which has become the main device in particle physics
to study the high energy frontier (Energies beyond 100GeV) . I will review the physics programme and goals behind it.
I will also show recent results which include possible hints for a new particle decaying to two photons (with an approximate mass of 750 GeV), which future data will support or refute.
I will end with hopes for the future.
