High Energy Particle Physics


The Higgs Boson and the Spacetime Metric

Authors: John A. Gowan

The inertial resistance to acceleration, a measure of a particle's mass, is attributed not to the "ether drag" of the Higgs boson, but to the resistance by the spacetime metric to the metric-warping intrusion forced upon it by the gravitational field of the accelerated particle. The gravitational field of a particle, whether composite or elementary, is an exact measure of its rest mass (Gm).
