Standard Model
The Standard Model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak, and strong nuclear interactions, as well as classifying all the subatomic particles known. It was developed th...

The Higgs-shaped elephant in the room
Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?
Is Particle Physics About to Crack Wide Open?
Hints of an unexpected new particle could be confirmed within days—and if it is, the Standard Model could be going down
Evidence Suggests Subatomic Particles Could Defy The Standard Model
A team of physicists working at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has found new hints of particles -- leptons, to be more precise -- being treated in strange ways not predicted by the Standard Model....
Large Hadron Collider Discovers New Pentaquark Particle
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have announced the discovery of a new particle called the pentaquark. It was first predicted to exist in the 1960s but, much like the Higgs boson particle befor...
Higgs Boson Mass Explained In New Theory
Three physicists who have been collaborating in the San Francisco Bay Area over the past year have devised a new solution to a mystery that has beleaguered their field for more than 30 years. This pro...
Physics Paper Sets Record With More Than 5,000 Authors
A physics paper with 5,154 authors has — as far as anyone knows — broken the record for the largest number of contributors to a single research article. Only the first nine pages in the 33-page artic...
Smoother-than-expected electrons could mean rethinking particle physics
The shape of electrons could mean a big headache for physicists who have been hoping supersymmetry would fill in the gaps of the standard model.
Higgs boson - Cern scientists believe newly discovered particle is the real Higgs boson
Results of analysis at Cern in Switzerland show particle behaves precisely as expected
Higgs boson - "God Particle" Found
The Higgs boson, or its like, has been confirmed with 99 percent certainty. Without it, we'd have no galaxies and no life, theory says.

Chiral anomaly
In physics, a chiral anomaly is the anomalous nonconservation of a chiral current. In some theories of fermions with chiral symmetry, the quantization may lead to the breaking of this (global) chiral...
Flavour (particle physics)
In particle physics, flavour or flavor refers to a species of an elementary particle. The Standard Model counts six flavours of quarks and six flavours of leptons. They are conventionally parameterize...
Higgs boson
The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle in the Standard Model of particle physics. Its main relevance is that it allows scientists to explore the Higgs field – a fundamental field ...

Hypercharge
In particle physics, the hypercharge Y of a particle is related to the strong interaction, and is distinct from the similarly named weak hypercharge, which has an analogous role in the electroweak int...

Vacuum expectation value
In quantum field theory the vacuum expectation value (also called condensate or simply VEV) of an operator is its average, expected value in the vacuum. The vacuum expectation value of an operator O i...
