Cosmology and the LHC
Physics Division Colloquium - 27 March 2009

The LHC is expected to shed light on the physics behind the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking, associated with the generation of mass of all known elementary particles. There are good reasons to think that the same physics is responsible for the origin of dark matter and, perhaps, of the observable matter-antimatter asymmetry. In this talk I will summarize the arguments that support the above statements and provide a few examples of the interplay between cosmology and collider physics at the LHC.
