Cross sections have been measured over 14 orders of magnitude at the LHC, with good agreement in general with predictions from QCD and the Standard Model. The only grain of salt of this success story is that, up to now, no unambiguous signs of new physics has been spotted. The most visible discovery of the LHC (to date) has been that of the Higgs boson. In this book, the theoretical and experimental knowledge built up over the first 8 chapters is applied to physics at the LHC, and especially to measurements of the Higgs boson, and interpretations of its properties. Precision Standard Model measurements are used to search for, and constrain, the presence of new physics.

Keywords:   LHC, QCD, Higgs boson discovery, W/Z bosons, jets, photons, underlying event, double parton scattering
