Introduction and Summary

Kang Sin Choi, Jihn E. Kim

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


During and since the second half of the twentieth century, enormous progress has been made in understanding our universe in terms of fundamental particles and their interactions, namely in the language of quantum field theory. The advent of the standard model (SM) of particle physics has been the culmination of quantum field theory in all its full glory. The beginning of this successful particle physics era was opened with the unexpected discovery of parity violation in weak interaction phenomena and the Brout–Englert–Higgs–Guralnik–Hagen–Kibble particle (the Higgs boson in short) closed the discovery series of the SM particles in 2012.
