The Large Hadron Collider was conceived as a discovery machine. So far it has performed brilliantly: a Higgs boson was discovered (Nobel Prize) and very many powerful limits on physics beyond the Standard Model were placed.

As a result of the physics observed so far at the LHC , however, a new demand on the LHC physics program is starting to take shape: to achieve unprecedented for a hadron collider experimental and theoretical precision. I will demonstrate how this new requirement emerged, why it is important, and what its implications for a range of important physics problems are. I will also discuss the two-way relationship between collider physics applications and more formal theoretical developments in, for example, gauge theory amplitudes.
