LHC highlights and prospects
These lectures were presented at the 2019 CERN–Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics. They were centered on the experimental methods used in hadron colliders to advance our understanding in the field of high-energy particle physics.
From accelerators, to particle detector technologies, object identification and data analyses techniques, the lectures did not attempt to provide a comprehensive, in-depth technical background, but rather focused on an overview of experimental techniques that enabled our advances in supporting and challenging the predictions of the Standard Model. This document includes a selection of the material presented in the lectures, focusing on how advances in detector technologies and object identification enabled the development of increasingly sophisticated data analysis techniques. This write-up also includes an outlook to the future LHC program and beyond.
