A new result released by the CMS Collaboration presents the first evidence of the Higgs boson interacting with the muon. The standard model of particle physics describes all the known fundamental particles in the Universe. A mystery of the standard...

A question researchers at the LHC are trying to answer is whether the properties of the Higgs boson are as predicted by the standard model. One way to do this is to look for extremely rare decays of the Higgs boson, as physicists in the CMS...

The Higgs boson is an extremely rare particle. At the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where bunches of protons collide at more than 99.9999% of the speed of light up to forty million times per second, a Higgs is produced around once per second. The...

A new year with new energy and new luminosities: 2012 holds the promise to close the question on the existence (or absence) of a Standard Model Higgs boson. Besides the obvious challenges posed by the LHC restart at a higher energy and a much...
