In particle Physics it's usual to write the physical content of a Theory in adjoint representations of the Gauge group. For example: $24\rightarrow (8,1)_0\oplus (1,3)_0\oplus (1,1)_0\oplus ...
What's the deepest reason why QCD bound states have integer electric charge, i.e. equal to an integer times the electron charge? Given that the quarks have the fractional electric charges they do, ...
Is the conjectured noncommutative heavy scalar “brother” of the already detected Higgs boson is a pseudo scalar?
This is a technical (may be trivial?) question about this sigma scalar field advertised by Chamseddine and Connes to improve the electroweak vacuum stability involved by the weak mass of the already ...
While writing these answers: Hypercharge for U(1) in SU(2)xU(1) model and Is there a concise-but-thorough statement of the Standard Model? , it occured to me that the unification prediction for ...
The clumsy "almost-commutative graviton" is provocative. I use it on purpose, to ask two questions in one : Is the observation of only one Higgs and no supersymmetric particle below 8 TeV (up to ...
I am quite new to this subject. I am just repeating in a few words, what I have learned so far: There are 4 fundamental forces of nature: strong, weak, electromagnetism and gravity. Physicists are ...
