1. Introduction

There is a widely used potential term in superconductivity, mean field theory, Landau-Ginzberg theory applied in spontaneous symmetry breaking of particle physics [instead of spontaneous the term instantaneous can also be used but symmetry breaking takes time from fractions of a second to hours in condensed matter physics]. Here calculation of the field strength coupling is completed of the potential term for the theory of particle physics. Similar steps are applicable in the theory of condensed matter physics as well. What is missing in Landau- Ginzberg theory is also getting corrected.

Maxwell formulated the theory of electromagnetism unifying electricity and magnetism and predicted the value of light speed. But photon was a massless particle. Klien, Gorden and Proca [1] advanced the theory for massive quantas. Landau and Ginzberg formulated the theory of phase transition in condensed matter physics. J. Goldstone [2] discussed field theories with superconductor solutions. With Weinberg and Salam, Goldstone [3] discussed broken symmetries. P. W. Higgs [4] adopted form of the potential from Landau and Ginzberg & field theory from Goldstone applied in symmetry breaking of particle physics and discussed how quantas can acquire mass in the broken symmetry which became popular as Higgs mechanism. Weinberg and Salam formulated the electro-weak theory unifying weak and electromagnetic interactions. They predicted values of W and Z bosons theoretically which are massive quantas and Higgs played a valuable role in the mass generation. It was said that W and Z bosons became massive by eating Higgs. Itself is sufficient to say Higgs mass is less than W and Z boson masses, not higher average values of CERN experiments of year 2012 which are logically ruled out. But neither P. W. Higgs nor S. Weinberg and A. Salam could provide a theoretical value for Higgs quanta in both of their versions of the theory. This is where the present author has played a key role. The most important breakthrough is the completion of field strength calculation of the potential term, the missing part of Higgs, Weinberg and Salam theories and prediction of Higgs quanta mass by the present new author. In electrostatics field strength is square of the charge of the electron in Coulomb Potential; if Higgs had studied this field strength coming from inverse square law of Coulomb he would not have missed the evaluation of the coupling in his noted theory on massive quantas. Higgs and Weinberg’s formulation of the theory is elegant but both could not come to the logical conclusion with Salam; their undetermined parameter λ (in Weinberg’s version it is h) is simply of the order of e2, the square of the charge of the electron except a simple numerical factor.

4. Conclusions

Field strength of the potential term adopted by P.W. Higgs from Landau-Ginzberg theory applied in particle physics has been theoretically calculated by present author in both Higgs and Weinberg-Salam versions of the theory. Meanwhile field strength was kept undetermined by Higgs, Weinberg-Salam following the way it was first formulated by Landau and Ginzberg. They all expected that it is a phenomenological parameter whose value can be given by experimental basis only. But it is worth to mention that it is hard to do experiments when there is no theoretical expression for this parameter then question arises―what is there to measure when it is not well defined. The important difference between former authors and our self is that present author provides a theoretical prediction for the field strength and Higgs mass which are fully consistent with latest experimental values. Experimenters have to adopt this new version with upgrading and calibrating their instruments.

In this work very important points missed by P. W. Higgs [4] in his first analysis of the Goldstone model were presented. Higgs [4] would not have missed the derivation of lambda coefficient at his time if he had carefully studied Klein-Gordon and Proca equations as scalar and vector component of one tensor corresponding to one massive quanta travelling with slow light speed than massless photon light.

But this point is apparent in the paper written by Kibble [4] and his collaborators at Imperial College in London at their time in which same is appearing for scalar and vector part of the boson. Even S. Weinberg and A. Salam have missed the point at their time. But E. Witten [5] , J. Ellis [6] have come nearby. A. Lahiri [7] also has similar settings. The dot peak value of 2012 CERN experiments is the Higgs mass1. Very clear picture of what was missing is very much apparent in the review of Julius Runninger [8] .
