What existed first, the Higgs Field or the boson? What is the relationship between the two, does the field interact with itself to create the boson (is this the only way that the boson came into existence), or does the boson somehow exert a field?
Physics Illinois takes great pride in the dedication, professionalism, and plain hard work of the scholars that meet one of our core missions—teaching. Each semester, the University's Center for Teaching Excellence polls our toughest critics—the students who take Physics classes—and asks them to assess the skills and effectiveness of their teachers. Only the very best make this list.
