The Energy Frontier Beyond the Higgs Boson Discovery
The Higgs boson discovery announced by the CMS and ATLAS Collaborations at CERN last year was a major milestone for particle physics. It filled in the last missing piece of the Standard Model, established 35 years ago. Where is particle physics headed now? The American Physical Society's Division of Particles and Fields called for a long-term planning exercise involving the high-energy physics community, and this "Snowmass 2013" process took place in the United States over the course of about a year. Similarly in Europe, a long-term planning exercise is now taking place under the direction of the European Committee for Future Accelerators. In this colloquium, I will discuss what we have learned from these exercises with emphasis on future prospects of the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider.
