Searching for the Origin of Masses
AIP Conference Proceedings
The origin of masses of weak gauge bosons as well as quarks and leptons is one of the most mysterious themes in high energy physics. In the standard model, it is explained as a result of a spontaneous symmetry breaking of the vacuum, which is caused by self-interaction of an unknown complex scalar field. Three weak gauge bosons acquire their masses by "eating" the three components of the scalar field. The remaining one component survives and called the "Higgs boson." Masses of quarks anddoi:10.1063/1.1514316 fatcat:rcxkl5cdfrffhaurdpywb427ey
