Spontaneous symmetry breaking and higgs mechanism

Kahraman, Işınsu
The relevance of Higgs mechanism to nature has been verified recently by two experiments, CMS and ATLAS at Large Hadron Collider. Therefore, a detailed understanding of the mechanismis mportant more than ever.The details of Higgs potential, its stability and mass generation mechanism are going to be explored and the Higgs particle which is the quantum fluctuation of the field will be discussed within the sponteneous symmetry breaking notion. The one loop corrections to the effective potential for various toy models as well as the Standard model are discussed within two different methods.
