Physics at the Terascale: on the verge of the LHC

Georg Weiglein (DESY)
DESY auditorium, 17:00h

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which is about to start going into operation, will open up the new territory of TeV-scale physics, where
ground-breaking discoveries and fundamental new insights into the fabric of matter, space and time are expected. Present experimental results
from electroweak precision data and measurements in the flavour sector show a sensitivity to TeV-scale physics via quantum effects. Possible implications for physics at the LHC and a future Linear Collider will be analysed. Furthermore, different scenarios of physics of electroweak symmetry breaking will be discussed, and the importance of precise theoretical predictions for identifying the nature of TeV-scale physics will be emphasized.
