- Boson [r]: elementary particle with integral spin; composite system consisting of an even number of fermions.
^{[e]} - Elementary particle [r]: A particle that has no internal structure; that is, both theoretically and experimentally there are no constituent particles that combine to make it up.
^{[e]} - Physics [r]: The study of forces and energies in space and time.
^{[e]} - Particle physics [r]: Branch of physics that deals with subatomic particles.
^{[e]} - Quantum chromodynamics [r]: A quantum field theory which supposes that fundamental particles such as protons and neutrons are made up of interacting quarks and gluons.

## Subtopics

- Mass [r]: The total amount of a substance, or alternatively, the total energy of a substance.
^{[e]} - Large Hadron Collider [r]: The highest-energy and largest particle accelerator based at European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland. The Large Hadron Collider is being used to determine experimentally whether the Higgs boson - as predicted by the Standard Model - exists.
^{[e]} - Dark matter [r]: Theoretical matter that neither emits nor absorbs light and appears to interact with other matter only gravitationally.
