The discovery of the Higgs boson is a major milestone in our progress toward understanding the natural world. A particular aim of this review is to show how diverse ideas came together in the conception of electroweak symmetry breaking that led up to the discovery. I also survey what we know now that we did not know before, what properties of the Higgs boson remain to be established, and what new questions we may now hope to address. 
Particle physics after the Higgs boson discovery: opportunities for the Large Hadron Collider
The first run of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN brought the discovery of the Higgs boson, an apparently elementary scalar particle with a mass of , the avatar of the mechanism that hides the
Properties of the Higgs Boson Discovered at the Large Hadron Collider
In their search for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson, the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations discovered a narrow bosonic particle with a mass of approximately 125 GeV during the first Large Hadron
Viewpoint: A More Precise Higgs Boson Mass
A new value for the Higgs boson mass will allow stronger tests of the standard model and of theories about the Universe’s stability.

Fundamental Physics and the Fine-Structure Constant
From the exponential function of Euler's equation to the geometry of a fundamental form, a calculation of the fine-structure constant and its relationship to the proton-electron mass ratio is given.

Weak Interactions with Lepton-Hadron Symmetry
We propose a model of weak interactions in which the currents are constructed out of four basic quark fields and interact with a charged massive vector boson. We show, to all orders in perturbation

In recent years, the study of weak interaction and its relationship with the other fundamental interactions of nature has progressed rapidly. Weak interactions of leptons and quarks provides an

According to a commonly held view of spontaneously broken symmetry in gauge theories, troublesome Nambu–Goldstone bosons are effectively eliminated by turning into longitudinal modes of a massive

We give an S -matrix-theoretic demonstration that if the Higgs-boson mass exceeds M c = ( 8 π 2 / 3 G F ) 1 / 2 , parital-wave unitarity is not respected by the tree diagrams for two-body scattering
