  • n. Alternative capitalization of Higgsino


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • But the higgsino is a spin-1/2 fermion and there exists a natural reason why such fermions want to stay light.

    The Reference Frame

  • Second, the Higgs boson has a partner itself - the higgsino.

    The Reference Frame

  • Because the Higgs boson is linked to the higgsino by supersymmetry, it would have to stay massless, too.

    The Reference Frame

  • Dirac mass terms, assuming that Nature completes the neutrinos into electron-like 4-component spinors by additional right-handed neutrinos), it can still be understood why it is a good zeroth approximation to assume that the higgsino is massless.
