Gauge fields

  1. Aug 28, 2014 #1
    Do gauge fields work the same way as the Higgs field?
    Are gauge fields all encompassing too, like the Higgs field?
    What are the differences between the functioning of gauge fields and Higgs field?

    You will get better answers if you tell us how much physics you know. Are you a student? If so, at what level? Have you studied quantum field theory? Do you know what a gauge field is?

    I'm a 12th grader. I don't know much...I'm just curious.
    I know a bit about gauge bosons.
