Summary: Standard and non standard ideas for the
Higgs boson sector
Johns Hopkins Workshop,
Heidelberg, August 2007
(almost an overview, 1 year ante LHC)
The framework declared
There are infinitely many theories at short
distances, that give the same physics of the
as long as the Higgs boson is in
their low-energy spectrum
We only know of approximate
symmetries that can explain this
What are these new phenomena?
Why haven't we seen any indirect
signal of them yet?
