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.
