The quartic Higgs self-coupling is the final measurement in the Higgs potential needed to fully understand electroweak symmetry breaking. None of the present or future colliders are known to be able to determine this parameter. We study the chances of measuring the quartic self-coupling at hadron colliders in general and at the very large hadron collider in particular. We find the prospects challenging.

I summarize some results related with the determination of the Higgs potential, including a hadron-level Monte Carlo study of the sensitivity of Higgs boson pair production via the WW∗WW∗ channel

Measuring the Higgs sector

If we find a light Higgs boson at the LHC, there should be many observable channels which we can exploit to measure the relevant parameters in the Higgs sector. We use the SFitter framework to map
