The Higgs Sector Quest

After the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, the importance of reaching a better understanding of the nature of the electroweak scale has become more important and more central to Particle Physics than ever. I will discuss examples of how to improve and complement current measurement strategies through exploiting new analysis techniques and BSM interference effects in SM processes. The described programme not only provides an opportunity to phenomenologically gain insights into the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking itself, but also allows to establish a “no-hide” theorem for natural extensions of the SM.
