Symmetry, Mass and Gravity

Bayram Tekin
METU, Ankara, Turkey

We will talk about the concept of mass in classical and modern physics in the light of the
recent discovery of the Higgs particle. We will explain how unbroken and broken symmetries
play role in the kinematical and dynamical definitions of mass and how gravity still refuses
to enter the picture.
