Higgs bosons

[′higz ¦bō‚sänz]
(particle physics)
Massive scalar mesons whose existence is predicted by certain unified gage theories of the weak and electromagnetic interactions; they are not eliminated by the Higgs mechanism.

He says if signs of a 115-GeV Higgs start to pile up early at the Tevatron, the physics community will quickly consider it a confirmation that the LEP data were actually due to Higgs bosons.
According to Bogdan Dobrescu, Adam Martin and Patrick J Fox from Fermilab, this large asymmetry effect can be accounted for by the existence of multiple Higgs bosons,reports The BBC.
Physicists will continue to ramp up the LHC, boosting it to higher energies and increasing the number of collisions to improve the chances of producing Higgs bosons.
The theory predicts yet-undiscovered particles that would be partners to standard-model particles, plus a family of five Higgs bosons.
At the new, higher energy, the LHC should produce more Higgs bosons than before - though it will also create more background processes that could mimic the Higgs.
Higgs bosons can decay in multiple ways; in one scenario, a Higgs transforms into a top quark or a W boson, either of which would in turn immediately break up into two long-lived, detectable photons.
They have so far found none, raising the possibility that there may indeed be two Higgs bosons.
Electroweak Force holds the Photons that create the Electrons, Wangs and Higgs Bosons but its Gravity that keeps both geometrical particles of Wang and Higgs with their respective contents in place just like Gravity keeps all planets in their respective order.
Just as an electric field consists of particles called photons, the Higgs field consists of Higgs bosons woven into the vacuum.
The Report disclosed the correct structure of the Atom and how 5 Higgs Bosons responsible for mass and properties of all Elements were created from 3 Strings.
In 1964, while walking through the Cairngorms in Scotland, Prof Higgs came up with the idea that particles - also known as bosons - derive their mass from the speed at which they pass through a field of much smaller particles, which were given the name Higgs bosons.
