The Higgs boson is a particle associated with the electroweak-symmetry breaking mechanism that was proposed in the 1960s and is a vital component of the Standard Model of particle physics. It is believed that all fundamental particles in the known...

A new year with new energy and new luminosities: 2012 holds the promise to close the question on the existence (or absence) of a Standard Model Higgs boson. Besides the obvious challenges posed by the LHC restart at a higher energy and a much...

Perhaps the most anticipated result of the LHC involves the search for the Higgs boson, the only particle predicted by the Standard Model (SM) that has not yet been seen by experiments. The Higgs boson helps explain how elementary particles acquire...

The hunt for the Higgs particle is well ahead of schedule, say researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Earlier this year they said they would either discover the Higgs or confirm it does not exist by the end of 2012. Now, because the machine...
