The Higgs Boson: Is It Real? by Michael Peskin - Free Public Lecture

Physicists have proposed that a particle called the Higgs Boson is responsible for generating the masses of all elementary particles. The Higgs Boson is called by some the ultimate elementary particle, by others "the God Particle". Does it really exist? Searches for the Higgs Boson are being carried out at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. Professor Peskin will describe the experiment and review what we have learned.
