Probing the TeV scale and beyond

The end of the first 7 TeV and 8 TeV runs of the LHC have left us with two significant discoveries. The first discovery is of the 126 GeV Higgs boson. This has sharpened our views of nature, placed added emphasis on perturbative theories with low-mass Higgs boson, and abolished the many ideas that had no Higgs boson in the spectrum. The second discovery is that there are no obvious and strong signals of exotic new physics beyond the standard model below this energy scale. This is unexpected since it was assumed that low-mass new physics is required to naturally accommodate the gauge hierarchy. The lack of definitive evidence for new physics and the variety of theoretical possibilities suggests the need to carefully reexamine questions such as the likely scales of new physics and how to look for them at the LHC and at other present and future facilities. The two-year period before the LHC turns on again at higher energy affords the particle physics community an opportunity for such a reevaluation.
