Mass and Energy
Lecture no. 6 from the course: The Higgs Boson and Beyond
Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
In this lecture, “classical” physics, as explained by Newtonian and Einsteinian mechanics, provides insight into what makes the Higgs so special. Uncover the key to the Higgs’s uniqueness in the particle zoo—that even at its minimum energy state (its “resting” state), the Higgs field has a large, constant value.
