Description

During the 2010-2012 LHC run I, the accelerator delivered a wealth of data to the four large and several smaller experiments at the four collision points, allowing significant advances in our knowledge of high-energy physics and culminating in the discovery of a Higgs boson in 2012. This talk will give an overview of the LHC experiments and physics program, with a particular emphasis on results from the large 2012 dataset.
