om Kibble contributed to our deepest understanding of the fabric and forces of the Universe. He is best known for his work on the phenomenon called spontaneous symmetry breaking — a cornerstone of the standard model of particle physics. His work led to the concept of a new elementary particle now known as the Higgs boson, which was experimentally observed in 2012. Kibble was also a pioneer in applying ideas from both high-energy physics and condensed-matter physics to the study of the early… Expand

Symmetry Breaking in Non-Abelian Gauge Theories
According to the Goldstone theorem, any manifestly covariant broken-symmetry theory must exhibit massless particles. However, it is known from previous work that such particles need not appear in aExpand
