# Is the Higgs a visible particle?

@article{Bollini1997IsTH, title={Is the Higgs a visible particle?}, author={Carlos Guido Bollini and Maria Cossu Rocca}, journal={Il Nuovo Cimento A (1971-1996)}, year={1997}, volume={110}, pages={363-367} }

SummaryWe suggest that the Higgs might be unobservable as a free particle, due to its origin at a symmetry-breaking mechanism. The standard model is kept intact, only the definition of the vacuum for the Higgs is changed. With the new (natural) definition, the Higgs propagator is half-advanced and half-retarded. This Green’s function is compatible with the absence of free particles.
