1. ElectroWeak theory after the first LHC phase: http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.3473 Abstract:
I summarize the status of the ElectroWeak Interactions after the first phase of the Large Hadron Collider and I give an outlook on its possible developments.

2. Summary of the Nobel Symposium on LHC Results: http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.3549
Authors: John Ellis
Abstract: This is a personal summary of points made during, and arising from the symposium, drawing largely from the talks presented there. The Standard Model is doing fine, including QCD, the electroweak sector and flavour physics. The good news is that a Standard-Model-like Higgs boson has appeared with the predicted mass, but the bad news is that the LHC has provided no hint of other new physics. On the other hand, physics beyond the Standard Model is needed to explain neutrino masses and mixing, and we look forward to experiments revealing their mass hierarchy and CP violation. Cosmology and astrophysics also require new physics to explain the origin of matter, dark matter, dark energy and the CMB fluctuations. I still think that supersymmetry is the best-motivated extension of the Standard Model, and look forward to the next phases of LHC operation at higher energy and luminosity. In the mean time, ideas abound for a new accelerator to study the Higgs boson in detail and/or whatever else the LHC may reveal in its next run.
