  • LHC status and plans

  • LHC statusLHC sectors are being cooled downthe last sector 45 will be at ~2K in July

    Some magnets needadditional training to reach Bmax

    To have the beam this year,LHC will start out at 10 TeV(no additional training needed)

    Magnets will be re-trained duringwinter shutdown to allow forthe 2009 run at 14 TeV

    T~2K, ready for cold tests, commissioning, and beam

  • LHC plan for 2008-20092008beam commissioning Aug-Octcenter-of-mass energy 10 TeV (some magnets need further training)peak luminosity 51031 cm-2s-1physics run 40 days (Oct-Nov)overall efficiency* 0.1 (based on the 1st year of LEP1)integrated luminosity 20 pb-1 (delivered for physics)

  • SM Higgs: what we know from theoryOne pseudo-scalar doublet F (4 degrees of freedom) Potential V = l|F|4 - m2|F|2

    After spontaneous symmetry breaking: W and Z acquire masses (3 degrees of freedom) the last remaining degree of freedom (4-3=1): scalar CP-even Higgs of unknown massl runs with Q: small mH at 1-TeV scale at some Q, l(Q) < 0 V has no minimum (vacuum breaks loose) large mH at 1-TeV scale at some Q, l(Q) = theory is non-perturbative (theorists retire) chimney l(Q) ~ const due to cancellation of +/- terms (fine tuning)

    mass must be within 50-600 TeV range

  • What we know experimentally: LEPDirect search at LEP:mH>114.4 GeV @ 95%CL

  • What we know experimentally: EWK fitsEWK precision data:mH
  • What we know experimentally: TevatronNote for the range around mH~160 GeV:

    The fact the currently observed limit runs ahead of the expected limit (left plot) makes it less likely to observe a 3s-excess later (right plot does not include these effects)
