The Goldstone boson equivalence theorem tells us that the amplitude for emission/absorption of a longitudinally polarized gauge boson is equal to the amplitude for emission/absorption of the corresponding Goldstone boson at high energy. I'm wondering what's the physical meaning of this theorem. Is there any relation between equivalence theorem and Higgs mechanism ?
