CERN Accelerating science

ABOUT ACADEMIC TRAINING
The Academic Training Lectures is organized to provide members of the CERN community, including users as well as staff members, with opportunities to deepen and broaden their academic knowledge, in particular by programming lecture courses at CERN on pure and applied scientific subjects.
The Library has a collection of all the handouts since the start of the program in 1961. Most lectures from 1990 onwards have also been recorded, post 2000 many of the recordings are also available as "webcasts".

Theories of Electroweak Symmetry Breaking : A Post LHC Run-I Perspective (3/3) / Wells, James Daniel (speaker) (University of Michigan (US))
Lecture 3 : Precision Higgs Analysis The Higgs boson era requires the development of a precision analysis effort analogous to that of the Z pole studies of the previous era. The work in this direction will be reviewed. [...]

Theories of Electroweak Symmetry Breaking : A Post LHC Run-I Perspective (1/3) / Wells, James Daniel (speaker) (University of Michigan (US))
Lecture 1 : The Brout-Englert-Higgs Theory of Electroweak Symmetry Breaking The goal of this lecture is to put the discovery of the Higgs boson in historical context and qualitatively discuss the importance and meaning of its discovery. Claims that the BEH theory has its roots in the theory developments of superconductivity will be considered [...]
