This book provides a comprehensive overview of the field of Higgs boson physics. It offers the first in-depth review of the complete results in connection with the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN's Large Hadron Collider and based on the full dataset for the years 2011 to 2012. The fundamental concepts and principles of Higgs physics are introduced and the important searches prior to the advent of the Large Hadron Collider are briefly summarized.

Lastly, the discovery and first mensuration of the observed particle in the course of the CMS experiment are discussed in detail and compared to the results obtained in the ATLAS experiment.

Roger Wolf studied physics at the Heidelberg University and received his PhD for the work on "Diffractive open charm production in deep-inelastic scattering and photo production at the HERA accelerator", in 2006. From 2007 till 2010 he worked as a post-doctorate at the University of Hamburg, where he was involved in the first measureme...
