High Energy Particle Physics


Higgs Boson Mass Can Be Derived From Masses of Z and W Bosons

Authors: Lamont Williams

For many decades, the Higgs boson was the missing piece of the Standard Model of particle physics — the successful theoretical framework that describes all of the known fundamental particles and their interactions. While the Standard Model predicts the existence of the Higgs boson, it does not predict a specific mass for the particle — this must be determined through experimentation. The masses of the other fundamental particles also must be measured and, to date, there does not appear to be any logical way to derive one mass value from the others. This does not appear to be the case for the Higgs boson, however. Here the author shows that the mass of the Higgs boson can be calculated using the mass values of the Z and W bosons, which represent two of its primary decay channels. The implications of this are potentially far-reaching, particularly as it suggests that the boson discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is not a fundamental particle, but instead is derived from Z and W bosons.
