These are lectures on Higgs boson collider searches. The author first reviews the Standard Model searches, then covers in-depth what comes after a candidate discovery at LHC, and finally discusses the MSSM extension to the Higgs sector.

We discuss electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We review Maxwell's equations and show that there are solutions representing the propagation of electromagnetic waves.
