“Perspectives on the LHC and new Frontiers in the search for Dark Matter”
By many metrics the Large Hadron Collider has been an astonishing success. It has discovered the mechanism for the origin of mass of fundamental particles and has tested the Standard Model of particle physics over a huge range of scales. However, many of the questions which were open at the start of LHC collisions remain unanswered. In this talk will give a personal perspective on where the LHC has been and where it is going. Looking to the future, I will discuss accelerator-based attempts to solve one of the biggest open questions in particle physics: what is the nature of dark matter?
