Discovery seminar by Daniele Zanzi

How much do we know about the Yukawa interaction?

Abstract:
The Yukawa interaction between the Higgs boson and fermions is a new force in the SM, discovered only few years ago.
This force determines critical properties of our Universe, from the strength of chemical bounds to the stability of the Universe itself.
The precise measurement of the properties of the Yukawa interaction is a crucial test to the SM, and can reveal new sources of CP violation and hints for new massive particles. However, the precision of the current results is not sufficient for such test. More data and new measurements are needed.
This talk will present the status and limitations of the current measurements of strength and parity of the Yukawa interaction at the LHC. It will also present prospects for future measurements at the HL-LHC.
