### Does the Higgs Boson “operate” inside, outside, or throughout the volume of an Atom?

Is the Higgs force exchanged by particles within the atomic structure, or is the Higgs force exerted on individual particles, at the quantum scale, independent of their atomic coorelations?

### Attractive higgs force and inflation

Inflation was the extreme accelerating expansion of the universe, see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inflation_(cosmology) It worked in a similar way to dark energy but was so strong it would ...

### Hypercharge of the complex Higgs doublet

I was wondering how one can see that the hypercharge of the complex Higgs doublet is $Y=\frac{1}{2}$. Complex Higgs doublet. $$\Phi(x) = \begin{pmatrix}\ \Phi^{+}(x)\\ \Phi^{0}(x) \end{pmatrix}$$ ...

### Does the Higgs boson give mass to ALL other particles? [duplicate]

The Higgs Field gave mass to other particles via spontaneous symmetry breaking; does this mean it gives mass to all particles that have mass - such as neutrinos, quarks or weak bosons and strong ...

### When does a particle go through the Higgs Field?

This is a short and simple question... I have been reading my book on particle physics and quantum physics when I had thought of a question that it failed to answer: "Does a particle enter/interact ...

### How can the Higgs Boson have a mass? [duplicate]

If the Higgs Boson is supposed to be the particle responsible for other particles having mass. How can it itself have a mass? Is it not then a 'who came first, the chicken or the egg' situation?

### Higgs Standard Model Parity

In the Standard Model, the Higgs boson is expected to have spin 0 and even parity. I know how to get the spin-0 approach, but how do I argue for the even parity? Could you give a simple and a more ...

### Relativity and the Higgs field

We know very well that as the velocity of an object increases, its relativistic mass also increases because of an increase in its energy which is directly equivalent to mass. We also know that the ...

### What does the Higgs boson have to do with the uncertainty principle and quantum oscillations?

I was looking in New Scientist the other day when I saw something to do with the Higgs boson, energy levels, entropy, space/time, quantum oscillations and many other things. It was in a feature to do ...

### Impostor Higgs?

I recently came across this article, published in the respectable European Physical Journal A. (Apparently, there isn't any corresponding arXiv article for this, so I'm sorry if everyone isn't able to ...

### Mass generation by Chern-Simons theory

Why the mass generation via a Higgs mechanism is different from that of Chern-Simons theory? I haven't done any formal course in Quantum field theory,so how do I understand this just having some basic ...
