The cover page shows an event recorded with the CMS detector (LHC, CERN) in 2012 at a proton-proton centre of mass energy of 8 TeV. It shows characteristics expected from the decay of the standard model (SM) Higgs boson to a pair of photons (dashed yellow lines and green towers). The event could also be due to known SM background processes. (©: CERN, see
