    First, we don't do messaging to answer questions, we put the answers in the thread. Second, we don't do 2 questions in the same thread because it gets too confusing. Please delete your second question and start it in a new thread.

    Wikipedia: Higgs boson should give a good overview.

    Particle physics, in particular the Standard Model.
    Keep in mind that a proper theoretical understanding of the Higgs mechanism (which is related to the Higgs boson) will need some years of education in particle physics.
