Why in the standard model doesn't charge need a boson like mass needs the Higgs boson?
it is because EM field is infinite range field so the mediator must be massless from Yukawa style theories..... while we know that weak intereaction should be mediated by very massive boson as it is very short range.... so we require a mechenism to generate mass to them... which is Higgs mechanism....Why in the standard model doesn't charge need a boson like mass needs the Higgs boson?
The_Duck really said it all already, but I thought I might make it more explicit. Consider a massive scalar field theory (doesn't matter if you nothing about this, I will just draw a cartoon picture and make some claims you can just accept to stay with me . The Lagrangian for such a theory (from which you calculate everything else you might want to know about what happens in said theory) isMy question relates to why there isn't a 'charge field' associated with quantity charge analogous to the Higgs field associated with quantity mass.
