This note summarizes many detailed physics studies done by the ATLAS
and CMSCollab orations for the LHC, concentrating on processes involving the production
of high mass states. These studies show that the LHC should be able to elucidate
the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking and to study a variety of other topics
related to physics at the TeV scale. In particular, a Higgs boson with couplings given
by the Standard Model is observable in several channels over the full range of allowed
masses. Its mass and some of its couplings will be determined. If supersymmetry is
relevant to electroweak interactions, it will be discovered and the properties of many
supersymmetric particles elucidated. Other new physics, such as the existence of massive
gauge bosons and extra dimensions can be searched for extending existing limits
by an order of magnitude or more.
