The Top/Higgs gateway to new physics

The top quark and the Higgs boson are the heaviest elementary particles known so far.
They are intimately, yet somewhat mysteriously, related in the SM. Their peculiar phenomenology
offers inspiration to new physics model building and provides a unique opportunity for exploring
the TeV scale at the LHC. In this talk I survey the exciting opportunities ahead in light of the
possibility for the top quark and the Higgs boson to be portals to new physics and the corresponding
searches at the LHC.
