Peter Ware Higgs es un físico británico conocido por su proposición en los años 1960 de la ruptura de la simetría en la teoría electrodébil, explicando el origen de la masa de las partículas elementales, en general, y de los bosones W y Z, en particular. Este llamado mecanismo de Higgs predice la existencia de una nueva partícula, el bosón de Higgs, que a menudo se describe como «la partícula más codiciada de la física moderna». Tras el descubrimiento en el CERN de la partícula que lleva su nombre, en el año 2012, recibió el premio Nobel de física en 2013.
