prevailing today in representation of the structure of the universe at the micro level, it is believed that all of its constituent material woven from elementary particles that manifest themselves in two ways.On the one hand they are precisely particles, ie discrete objects, and on the other hand - this wave, i.e. continuous objects.Wave manifestations of elementary particles creates fields of interaction which causes the physical properties of macroscopic objects consisting of particles - from molecules to galaxies.In the past century, scientists ha
ve described exactly how to interact with each other elementary particles composed of objects, and even brought out the exact formulas.In these formulas, in one form or another are always present masses of interacting bodies.However, the mechanism of the origin of elementary particle masses has not been explained to the sixties of the last century.
theory, which most scientists agree, was proposed by the British physicist Peter Higgs.According to him, the emergence of the mass of elementary particles caused by the existence until then unknown field, consisting of particles even smaller than that everything is fixed.Way through the invisible veil of this field, the elementary particles and acquire the property that perfectly fits into the modern concept of mass.Creates a field particle was named after this scientist and brought to bosons, ieelementary units of matter, which is dominated by the wave nature.
If the existence of the Higgs boson will be able to confirm in practice, this would mean that in the modern theory of the structure of matter is no contradiction.Valid will follow from this representation theory of the origin of the universe in which the new particle plays the role of initiator - the reasons for imbalance, over time, led to the formation of planets, stars and galaxies in the form in which we now observe them.That is why the Higgs boson has already been nicknamed "God particle."
