2022-04-27: How the Higgs Mechanism Give Things Mass

  • 04:37: ... electromagnetism. Its bosons do have properties  that look like weak isospin and weak hypercharge,   but no electric charge. In our ...

2022-03-16: What If Charge is NOT Fundamental?

  • 10:36: We're going to call it weak isospin.
  • 10:45: Weak isospin is effectively the charge of the weak force, carried by these W bosons.
  • 11:05: And here's the weird thing: weak isospin and weak hypercharge are mixed in exactly the same way as Gell-Mann’s versions of these quantities.
  • 11:14: Which is to say, electric charge equals weak isospin plus half weak hypercharge.
  • 12:20: ... in what we call the electroweak force, whose charges were the same weak isospin and hypercharge that we just ...
