PIRSA:C10007 - Beyond the Standard Model Physics and the LHCPODCAST Subscribe to podcast

These three lectures cover several ideas of physics beyond the Standard Model. My focus is on ideas that give a natural stabilization solution to the electroweak scale, which is mysteriously light compared to the gravitational Planck scale. These ideas include supersymmetric field theories, extra dimensions, and Higgs boson physics. I shall describe what I think are the "best bets" among these approaches, and more importantly the ways they can be discerned by experiment. Special emphasis will be on theories that can be confirmed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that is just now starting.
