What can a theoretical physicist discover something new about the higgs boson . This is for experimentalist but can a theoretical physicist discover anything new about the higgs boson ? And what peter higgs discovered other than detected it . He is a theoretical physicist did he wrote a new equation in the higgs field or what ? And why its called after his name "higgs" i know that 2 people discovered that particle and won the nobel prize in 2013 Peter Higgs and François Englert so why only Peter ?
