# Higgs-field gravity within the standard model

@article{Dehnen1991HiggsfieldGW, title={Higgs-field gravity within the standard model}, author={Heinz Dehnen and Hartmut Frommert}, journal={International Journal of Theoretical Physics}, year={1991}, volume={30}, pages={985-998} }

Within the framework of the Glashow-Salam-Weinberg model it is shown that the Higgs field mediates an attractive scalar gravitational interaction of Yukawa type between the elementary particles which become massive by the ground state of the Higgs field after symmetry breaking.
