A team of researchers at the (https://www.livescience.com/27888-newfound-particle-is-higgs.html) Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the massive particle collider in Geneva on the border between France and Switzerland, is trying to determine if a heavier (https://www.livescience.com/27888-newfound-particle-is-higgs.html) Higgs Boson really exists.
SM gauge singlet Higgs boson with a B-L charge -2 is also contained in the model and its vacuum expectation value (VEV) breaks the B-L gauge symmetry.
Prof Lucini, head of the Department of Mathematics at Swansea, said: "This topic has stimulated my imagination at least since 1983, when, as an 11-year-old, I learned from the news about the discovery at Cern - the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, of one of the most fundamental particles - the Z boson.
The role of the boson, first mentioned explicitly (in the form of a new massive spinless particle) in the theoretical work of P.
Hawking had said the Higgs boson particle would never be found and put a bet, believed to be $100, on it.
The Higgs boson helps to explain how elementary particles obtain their mass.
Thus, proceeding from the viewpoint of the suggested model, such heavy particles decaying into the boson pair having a summary mass of ~ 2 TeV are very possible.
Tres grandes pensadores pontificaram na Filosofia do Direito, na Faculdade de Direito da UFMG, cujas obras, de tendencias diversas, originais e profundas, foram por mim apresentadas a comunidade academica em publicacoes anteriores: Carlos Alvares da Silva Campos, na vertente do positivismo critico, dialogando com Kant atraves da sua original doutrina da "experiencia inevitavel" (3); Edgard de Godoy da Mata-Machado, reagindo com a doutrina do direito natural, apoiado em Santo Tomas de Aquino, atraves do pensamento de Jacques Maritain (4); e Gerson de Brito Mello Boson, determinando o topos do direito na teoria dos valores, sustentada por uma cosmovisao, uma antropologia e uma ontologia cuidadosamente articuladas.
In fact, when Gianotti first saw the readouts proving the Higgs boson had been found, she jumped up and cried, "My God!" She regained her composure in time for the press conference, where she called out, "Thanks, nature!" And that's a tragedy.
Two years ago the LHC team at Cern, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, astounded the world with the discovery of the Higgs boson, an elementary particle that gives other particles mass.
Homer Simpson predicted the mass of the Higgs boson, often known as "the God particle," 14 years before it was discovered by scientists, a science writer claims, reports The Telegraph.
One of said conclusions is that Homer Simpson discovered the mass of the Higgs boson particle 14 years before scientists - and didn't need the Large Hadron Collider to do it.
Alexander Kusenko, a professor of physics and astronomy in the UCLA College, and colleagues propose that the matter-antimatter asymmetry could be related to the Higgs boson particle, which was the subject of prominent news coverage when it was discovered at Switzerland's Large Hadron Collider in 2012.
SCIENTISTS say a new particle could be detected this year that's even more exciting than the Higgs boson.
The Higgs Boson was named after Professor Peter Higgs, emeritus professor at Edinburgh University.
