Hello! I was hoping somebody may be able to help me understand something much beyond the physics I have learned so far. I need to complete an assignment that I believe is asking me to find the Higgs potential function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. My professor mentioned the following: minimization at the origin, spontaneous symmetry breaking, and choices of a parameter such that (H)[itex]\neq[/itex]0. Could anyone organize these topics for me? For instance, what is this process called, and what is its role in the theory?

Thanks, and I apologize if this is vague and/or incorrect
