Composite Weak Bosons and the New Boson at the LHC

ECT* Colloquium

ECT* Conference room
Abstract: 

The weak bosons are composite particles. The masses of the weak bosons are given by the field energy of the constituents. A Higgs particle is not needed.

The boson, observed at the LHC, is a p wave excitation of the Z boson. The other p wave excitations have a higher mass and should soon be observed at the LHC.
