Nature of Charge

  1. Jan 11, 2015 #1
    Higgs Field theory successful explains the origin of mass. Like mass, charge is also a fundamental property of particles, it is similar to mass in many ways, like quantized, electrical force vs gravitational force. So, I wonder what is the origin of charge, how much understanding modern physics has on this problem?

    The origin of charge is the U1 gauge symmetry.
