Following on my series of articles on Fields and Particles, I’m building my next series of articles, on How the Higgs Field Works. (These sets of articles require a little math and physics background, the sort you’d get in your first few months of a beginning university or pre-university physics class.)
The first article in the new series was an overview of The Basic Idea behind how the Higgs field works. I recently revised it to make it easier to read.
The next article, just completed, is about why and how the Higgs field becomes non-zero — to the extent that we understand it. (The following article will explain how the Higgs particle arises.)
