Particularly, the observable mass distribution of celestial bodies is connected via scaling with the mass distribution of fundamental particles [9], that can be understood as contribution to the fundamental link between quantum--and astrophysics.
Rumours have been circulating with increasing fervour over the past few days that the chaps at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern in Switzerland are on the point of making an announcement that they have discovered the Higgs Boson, the elusive sub-atomic particle predicted by the Standard Model of fundamental particles, which is thought by some to be what gives mass to other particles.
As shown in [5], it is not the SM mathematics, but the "standard" view of the mathematics that results in the Cosmological Constant Problem while hiding Nature's mass symmetry, a symmetry in keeping with the cosmological constant and a symmetry that results in a single mass formula for the fundamental particles ([W.
Taking a mass symmetric approach to fundamental particle mass leads to an eloquently simple spin quantized mass relationship between the stable spin 1/2 electron and proton mass and the unstable spin 1 [W.
These extra spatial dimensions may correspond to six or seven dimensions "curled up" into an internal symmetry space for defining fundamental particle states at each spacetime point in order to accommodate the SM in the low energy regime.
He was part of the team that discovered a fundamental particle called the top quark at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in 1995.
Their studies showed the hard core of a proton, a fundamental particle of the atomic nucleus and a building block for all matter, shrinks at high energies.
According to experts, photonics -- which takes its name from the photon, the fundamental particle of light -- promises high-speed, high-capacity fiber optic Internet communications for use in next-generation applications in education, medicine, entertainment and commerce.
A hard-to-observe fundamental particle that travels alone, the neutrino has little or no mass, so rarely interacts with other particles.
In addition to its education and research programs, the Duke center will emphasize research and development partnerships with the many photonics-related corporations in the state, as well as with North Carolina universities involved in the technology of computing and communicating using photons - the fundamental particle of light.
