The different faces of the Higgs

Abstract: Last year was marked by an event of fundamental importance, that is, the discovery of the Higgs boson. In this talk, I will argue that the Higgs field enjoys a special status in the Standard Model and its extensions. It may provide us with a unique opportunity to probe the hidden sector. Furthermore, it may hold the key to the mysteries of dark matter and inflation, as well as other puzzles of particle physics.
