Higgs Boson: The Next Generation

In 2018 the LHC finished its longest operations run to date, colliding 44 million billion protons at world-record energies over the course of 3 years. The CMS and ATLAS experiments have used this data to study the interactions of the Higgs with second generation fermions. In summer 2020, both collaborations completed their analyses of Higgs decays to muons, producing the first evidence that muons derive their mass from an extremely weak interaction with the Higgs field. I will also survey the prospects for further Higgs studies in Run 3 of the LHC.
