Is this the correct form for a Dirac electron in a Higgs field with scalar potential [itex]\phi[/itex] and an electromagnetic field with vector potential [itex]A_\mu[/itex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]i \gamma^\mu \partial_\mu \psi = g \phi \psi + e \gamma_\mu A^\mu \psi [/itex]

where [itex]g[/itex] is the coupling constant to the Higgs field and [itex]e[/itex] is the coupling constant to the electromagnetic field?
