Unity in the Scientific Community Allows for Discovery of Higgs-Boson ParticleWith contributions arriving from all over the world, it is no wonder that the Mathematical Research Letters have been a major uniting force between some of the best brain power collectives in the world. From Stockholm to Moscow, Malaysia to Chicago, any and all findings are universally welcome (of course, assuming they are accurate), as they contribute to the greater good of science and ultimately shorten the time required to produce new discoveries and enhance the developments that are directly dependent in many fields upon what new breakthroughs mathematicians are able to do in their research.
It was research conducted in Switzerland by teams from all around the world that resulted in the discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle. Efforts of scientists all over the globe resulted in the further understanding of what is now known as the Higgs-Boson field, and its effects upon all matter in the universe. Furthermore, new formulas were even designed to explain the phenomenons that resulted from the influence the Higgs-Boson field has upon atomic structures and even upon the chances of there being any matter in this universe at all.
Using a little bit of the theory to elaborate on that last point: there are essentially two states of the Higgs-Boson field, the one which currently pervades the universe in which we live, and one that is super dense (the difference between the two has been related to the difference between water and ice). If the Higgs-field were even a little more dense than the current state it is in, atomic structures that exist now would instantly decay and only one element would survive: Hydrogen.
Now, if the Higgs-Boson field became as dense as it’s second form (mentioned earlier), no molecular structures at all would exist. It is amazing to consider that the more that mathematicians and scientists discover, the more it is becoming apparent exactly how precarious and nearly impossible the chances are that our universe exists at all. When the near impossibilities are compounded with others in medicine, and all the conditions necessary for our bodies to function, for as many babies to survive as presently do, or even that our earth is the exact perfect distance from the sun, it seems that mathematicians should not continue to be surprised that it everything in our universe is basically balanced on the tip of a pin. All statistics within the physical universe point to either an incredibly lucky situation for all humans, or a very divine appointment of a greater power.
