Special Issue on Higgs physics, and beyond, after 10 years since the discovery


Ten years ago, on July 4th, 2012, the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) announced the discovery of a new particle with a mass of 125 GeV. Rather shortly after there were no doubts left that this new particle was the long sought-for Higgs boson (H), the unique elementary scalar particle, heralding the validity of the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism of spontaneous breaking the symmetry for the electroweak sector of the Standard Model (SM), predicted in 1964.

From the Editor-in-Chief: Welcome to LHEP!

Dear colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome all of you to Letters in High Energy Physics (LHEP). By now, we have all witnessed how recent ground breaking discoveries in fundamental physics revolutionized and challenged our understanding of the universe at all length scales. New frontiers in beam energy and luminosity are expanding our experimental reach, validating old paradigms while posing new questions. The same scenario has played out on the cosmic scale. New and brave theoretical ideas are tying high energy physics to nearly all other disciplines in physics in the most novel and unexpected ways. The field is as alive and as vibrant as ever and it continues to attract the best and the brightest.
On another front, the success of the open access model has revolutionized the world of academic more>>
