In view of the discovery of a new boson by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at the LHC, we present an update of the global Standard Model (SM) fit to electroweak precision data. Assuming the new particle to be the SM Higgs boson, all fundamental parameters of the SM are known allowing, for the first time, to overconstrain the SM at the electroweak scale and assert its validity. Including the effects of radiative corrections and the experimental and theoretical uncertainties, the global fit… 
First look at the physics case of TLEP
A bstractThe discovery by the ATLAS and CMS experiments of a new boson with mass around 125 GeV and with measured properties compatible with those of a Standard-Model Higgs boson, coupled with the
Electroweak theory and global fit
We perform the fit of electroweak precision observables within the Standard Model with a 126 GeV Higgs boson, compare the results with the theoretical predictions and discuss the impact of recent
PDF uncertainties in the determination of the W boson mass and of the effective lepton mixing angle at the LHC
The precision measurement of the W boson mass allows to perform stringent consistency tests of the Standard Model by means of global electroweak fits. The accurate determination of the W boson mass
Update of the global electroweak fit and constraints on two-Higgs-doublet models
We present an update of the global fit of the Standard Model electroweak sector to latest experimental results. We include new kinematic top quark and W boson mass measurements from the LHC, a $$\sin
Synthesis on Heavy Higgs from the Standard Model to 2HDM and Beyond
: In the context of particle physics, within the ATLAS and CMS experiments at large hadron collider (LHC), this work presents the discution of discovery a particle compatible with the Higgs boson by
Observation of a Higgs boson and measurement of its mass in the diphoton decay channel with the ATLAS detector at the LHC
The Standard Model of the particle physics predicts the existence of a massive scalar boson, usually referred to as Higgs boson in the literature, as resulting from the Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking
Higgs couplings and precision electroweak data
A bstractIn light of the discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the LHC, we revisit the status of the precision electroweak data, focusing on two discrepant observables: 1) the long-standing 2.4σ
Measurement of the W boson mass and the calibration of the muon momentum with the ATLAS detector
In this thesis measurement of the W -boson mass based on data collected during 2011 in proton–proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron
Exploration of the Higgs sector after its discovery
The discovery of the Higgs boson culminates a 40-year long hunt and completes a theoretical framework under which almost all collider data can be consistently explained. At the same time,


The MSSM confronts the precision electroweak data and the muon g − 2
We update the electroweak study of the predictions of the Minimal Super-symmetric Standard Model (MSSM) including the recent results on the muon anomalous magnetic moment, the weak boson masses, and
Revisiting the global electroweak fit of the Standard Model and beyond with Gfitter
AbstractThe global fit of the Standard Model to electroweak precision data, routinely performed by the LEP electroweak working group and others, demonstrated impressively the predictive power of
