Quantum Field Theory
Lecture no. 2 from the course: The Higgs Boson and Beyond
Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Toss out the textbook image of electrons circling an atom’s nucleus. This lecture explores the big twist of quantum field theory: The world isn’t really made of particles. They’re fascinating and necessary figments of quantum mechanics created by observing the fields that fill every inch of the universe, and grasping that eye-opening concept is essential to understanding the Higgs.
