Ten days ago I started providing you with a more careful summary of the Higgs Symposium (held January 9-11 at the University of Edinburgh, as part of the new Higgs Center for Theoretical Physics), to make up for the quick blog posts that I put up during and just after the symposium (#1, #2 and #3). The aim was to provide a more coherent overview, appropriate for non-expert readers, of our current knowledge and ignorance concerning the recently discovered Higgs-like particle. Initially I put up about half of the summary, organized as follows

As of today, I have added the following segment, mainly based on Professor Nima Arkani-Hamed’s talk about the implications for supersymmetry of the (presumed)-Higgs particle’s mass and properties .

At least two more segments will follow soon.

The idea that a field could be responsible for the masses of particles (specifically the masses of photon-like [“spin-one”] particles) was proposed in several papers
