Peter Higgs, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist and one of the founders
of the theoretical physics of elementary particles, has passed
away. He was the visionary behind the existence of the Higgs
boson. Prior to 1970, the theory of elementary particles could not
account for the mass of the smallest components of matter, although it
could explain the mass of the vast majority of substances as energy
content. This was because symmetry-based interaction theories excluded
the non-zero mass of elementary particles, such as the electron.
