In the articles below, I explain
- What does the data actually show? Why makes the evidence in favor of a new particle so convincing?
- What elements of first-rate experimental technique and plain-old luck combined to make the result so strong?
- Why I am personally so convinced (more than the experimentalists seem to be right now) that the new particle is a Higgs particle, as opposed to something else?
- To what extent is this particle consistent with the simplest Higgs (a “Standard Model Higgs”) as opposed to a more complicated type?
I’ve also added some personal remarks.
