In the Standard Model of particle physics, the Higgs mechanism is essential to explain the generation mechanism of the property “mass” for gauge bosons.

The Abelian Higgs model is the Mexican-hat model coupled to electromagnetism.

S(\phi, A) = \int - {1\over 4} F^{\mu\nu} F_{\mu\nu} + |(\partial - i q A)\phi|^2 - \lambda (|\phi|^2 - \Phi^2)^2.

we want to plot potential part of the equation

V(f, Φ) = λ(|f|2 − Φ2)2

we use f=1 and the Φ the complex number with can be describe as x and y axis


The equation become


And we choose nice view with V=2z, then


In the Mathmod the IsoSurfaces using form F(x,y,z,t)=0
