The discovery of a new particle in 2012 has been a milestone in particle
physics. This great success is now being followed by the identification
of the nature of this particle and the particle’s properties are being
measured. The results conform so far with the assumption of the
Higgs boson of the Standard Model of particle physics. However, many models
going beyond the Standard Model can also describe such a particle.
In this talk, I will first review what was discovered in 2012 and why it is considered to be so crucial.
Then I will discuss some consequences on physics beyond the Standard Model.
