This is more of a QFT question, so the moderator may want to move it to another forum.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The simplest example of a QFT that I learned was the scalar field; in Sakurai's 1967 text book.

I know the Higgs is a J=0 particle. Is it described by the simple scalar field discussed in Sakurai's text? I ask because I hear about the complexity of the Higgs and that there may be up to 5 Higgs bosons.

Your thoughts and comments are welcome.
