After several years of LHC experiments operating in CERN (Geneva), Katoptron theory will have emerged as the leading explanation of the effective Higgs mechanism responsible for the masses of elementary particles. In addition, we will have enough evidence to rule out most of alternative theories predicting supersymmetric particles around the TeV energy scale or extra dimensions around the TeV energy scale.
Evidence for Katoptron theory, coming from the actual production of katoptrons and possibly deviations of parameters like V_tb and A_t, might come even earlier than 2020. However, by 2020 we will have gathered enough experimental data from LHC in order to limit statistical uncertainties to a level giving us confidence in the existence of katoptrons. By that date, experimental and theoretical refinements will have reached a status allowing katoptrons to be incorporated in the widely accepted body of scientific knowledge.
ReasonKatoptron theory is unique in being able to predict the TeV energy scale within a framework of unification of fundamental interactions. Alternative theories introduce the TeV energy scale ad hoc or offer just self-consistent, not explanatory, solutions.
