Triplet Model: Second Webpage Complete

Advanced particle physics today:

I’m continuing the reader-requested explanation of the “triplet model,” a classic and simple variation on the Standard Model of particle physics, in which the W boson mass can be raised slightly relative to Standard Model predictions without affecting other current experiments.

The math required is pre-university level, mostly algebra and graphing.

The second webpage, describing what particles are in field theory, and how the particles of one field can obtain mass from a second field, is ready now. In other words, the so-called “Higgs mechanism” for mass generation is sketched on the new page.

Meanwhile the first page (describing what the vacuum of a field theory is and how to find it in simple examples) is here. 

Please send your comments and suggestions, as I will continue to revise the pages in order to improve their clarity.
