- I cannot seem to find any information on these particles other than they are bosons and they may have something to do with the Higgs field or weak iso spin, but they don't appear on the Standard Model.
Main Question or Discussion Point
They seem to have something to do with Z or W particles, maybe, and they have something to do with mediating weak iso spin, I think, and they may be related to the Higgs field. But they don't have a box dedicated to them on the Standard Model of particle physics. Can someone tell me why this is, and also what the hell are they. Are they just theoretical, or have they been superseded. There appears to be a dearth of information about them for the lay person. I mean if they are actual real bosons, shouldn't they be listed? I'm a bit confused about this and some enlightenment would be appreciated.
