advanced questions

some questions I myself find fascinating:

  • As the Higgs Boson interacts with itself (it couples to mass), which force belongs to this exchange interaction of the Higgs Boson (discovery and Nobel price 2013)?
higgs potential
Higgs potential and spontaneous symmetry breaking
  • The Graviton has not been found yet nor is there a candidate for a TOE (Theory of everything). But does gravity necessarily have to be an exchange interaction? Or could it be an entropic force and does the Graviton maybe not even exist? → Read more about the theorist Eric Verlinde and his theory about Entropic Gravity.
