 P: 344 Is this the correct form for a Dirac electron in a Higgs field with scalar potential $\phi$ and an electromagnetic field with vector potential $A_\mu$ $i \gamma^\mu \partial_\mu \psi = g \phi \psi + e \gamma_\mu A^\mu \psi$ where $g$ is the coupling constant to the Higgs field and $e$ is the coupling constant to the electromagnetic field?
 Sci Advisor P: 3,449 Looks Ok to me. And φ = v + h.

Thanks a lot.

I guess v is the Higgs vacuum expectation value and h is the physical Higgs field.
