Theoretical Physics to Face the Challenge of LHC

The book gathers the lecture notes of the Les Houches Summer School that was held in August 2011 for an audience of advanced graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in particle physics, theoretical physics, and cosmology, areas where new experimental results were on the verge of being
discovered at CERN.Every Les Houches School has its own distinct character. This one was held during a summer of great anticipation that at any moment contact might be made with the most recent theories of the nature of the fundamental forces and the structure of space-time. In fact, during the session, the long anticipated discovery of the Higgs particle was announced. The book vividly describes the fruitful and healthy “schizophrenia” that is the rule among the community of theoreticians who have split into several components: those doing phenomenology, and those dealing with highly theoretical problems,with a few trying to bridge both domains.
