Physics at the LHC Run-2 and Beyond

Andreas Hoecker


After an astounding Run-1 with 8 TeV proton–proton collisions, featuring among others the discovery of the Higgs boson, Run-2 of the Large Hadron Collider has started in 2015 colliding protons with unprecedented 13 TeV centre-of-mass energy. The higher energy and large expected integrated lu- minosity significantly increases the discovery potential for new physics, and allows for more detailed Higgs boson studies as well as improved Standard Model measurements. The present lecture discusses methods, recent results and future prospects in proton–proton physics at the LHC.
