Higgs boson[edit]

Can you look again at this edit?

If the Higgs boson is detected, then we know the Higgs field exists (otherwise it can't be a Higgs boson by definition). If the Higgs field is proven to exist then by definition we will know how the EWSB Higgs mechanism takes place (otherwise it isn't a Higgs field, again by definition). We might not know the exact details of the field or every facet of EWSB, but we will know how the EWSB Higgs mechanism takes place, and that it is indeed because of a Higgs Field as hypothesized, and not (for example) because of some other reason.

Is there a cite behind your revert? Has any significant cited source suggested that a Higgs boson and Higgs field might be proven to both exist exist and yet the means by which EWSB Higgs mechanism takes place might still (despite these) not be explained and be due to a different reason?

The Higgs mechanism is a mechanism for generating mass. So if the found Boson is confirmed to be the Higgs Boson then it confirms that the Z boson mass etc is caused by the Higgs mechanism. If the mass of the particles are formed in a different way (|Technicolor, Top quark condensate) then it's not a Higgs mechanism. If there's more than one Higgs mechanium I'm sorry and your edit was correct, but I'm not aware of different versions. Dja1979 (talk) 13:39, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
