Beyond the Standard Model: status and remaining hopes — •Christophe Grojean — DESY Hamburg — Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
The Standard Model is a triumph of the combination of the two pillars of twentieth-century physics: quantum mechanics and special relativity. While it offers a remarkably accurate description of the matter we are made of, it fails to describe 95% of the matter and energy the Universe is made of. Furthermore, its theoretical structure stumbles upon troubling problems seemingly calling for delicate tunings of its input parameters. Building upon these deficiencies, theorists have devised ultra-violet completions of the Standard Model featuring new particles and new interactions or going beyond the boundaries of our usual 4D space-time. The quest for these new phenomena beyond the Standard Model is an active field of research that requires intense collaborations between the LHC experimentalists and the theorists. In this talk, I shall review what has been learnt from the LHC and what could still be revealed.
