Title: Exciting the Vacuum: Possible Manifestations of the Higgs Particle at the LHC

The Higgs boson is the particle most anticipated at the LHC. However, there is currently no leading theory of electroweak symmetry breaking (and the 'Higgs mechanism'). The many possibilities suggest more »many ways the Higgs could appear in the detectors, some of which require non-standard search methods. I will review the current state of beyond the standard model physics and the implication for Higgs physics. I then discuss some non-standard Higgs decays and suggest (perhaps naive) new experimental strategies for detecting the Higgs in such cases. In some models, while part of the new physics at the weak scale would be visible, the Higgs would be nearly impossible to detect.« less
