A Klein-Gordon Field is a Quantum Field that obeys the Klein-Gordon Equation. It Describes Scalar, or Spin-0 Fields, including the famous elemwentary Higgs Field,.

Lagrangian DensityEdit this section

The Lagrangian Density of a free Klein-Gordon Field is given by:

$ \mathcal{L}=c_0 \bar{\psi} \left( \Box + \mu^2 \right) \psi $

This can easily, trivially, be derived through the Klein-Gordon Equation along with the Euler-Lagrange Equation.

In the non-free case, replace the $ \partial $'s with $ \nabla $'s.

Higgs FieldEdit this section

Main Article: Higgs Field

The Higgs Field is the first and so far, only elementary Klein-Gordon Field observed experimentally (at the Large Hadron Collider). It is a scalar, spin-0, and therefore Klein-Gordon Field.
