About Our Lectures
The Simons Foundation launched the Simons Foundation Lectures in 2013 with the intention of drawing area scientists and scholars together around diverse and important topics in mathematics, physics, computer science, life sciences and autism research.

In this lecture, Eiichiro Komatsu will describe the ‘cosmic microwave background,’ the light remnants of the Big Bang.
In recent decades, physicists and astronomers have discovered two beautiful standard models, one for the quantum world of extremely short distances and one for the universe as a whole. Both models have had spectacular success, but there are also strong arguments for new physics beyond these models.
In this talk, Joe Incandela will present an overview of the LHC physics program, including highlights from the discovery of a Higgs boson and a summary of more recent studies that incorporate more data. He will briefly discuss expectations for future results in years to come.
