Elementary Particles and Future Colliders

Colliders (and accelerators) have been drive engines for discovering elementary particles and the fundamental laws of the nature. With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) our reach to the microscopic world has been deepened to a scale as short as 10^-18 m. The observation of the Higgs boson completes the standard model. Yet there are still many outstanding questions to be answered. In this lecture, the role of the Higgs boson and the history of its discovery will be reviewed. Focused on the CEPC project, proposals for the future colliders will be introduced and their scientific and social impacts will be discussed. [link]
