Title:Precision Higgs Physics

Abstract: The Nobel Prize in Physics 2013 was awarded jointly to
François Englert and Peter W. Higgs "for the theoretical discovery of a
mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of
subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the
discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS
experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider”. Why is the Higgs boson so
important?
What is the present status of our understanding of such a particle?
What is the plan to study its properties in future?
I will talk about these topics based on some of my previous work.

CV: Dr. Wang graduated from Peking University with a doctorate degree in
2013. Then he went to Mainz Johannes Gutenberg University in Germany as
a postdoc fellow. He moved to Technical University of Munich in 2016.
His main research is in precision collider phenomenology, which involves
higher-order QCD (Quantum Chromodynamics) corrections. His PhD thesis
has been published on Springer Theses. So far, he has published over 30
journal papers with more than 500 citations. Some of his research
results have been adopted by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations in
analysing experimental signals. His paper on the precision predictions
of the Higgs boson transverse momentum distributions has been included
in《The Review of Particle Physics》.
