I'm interested in mathematical physics.

comment What does “the ${\bf N}$ of a group” mean?
Maybe you meant $so(3)$ instead of $SO(3)$. The Lie group $SO(3)$ has irreps of only odd dimension but it's Lie algebra $so(3) = su(2)$ has irreps of every dimension.

comment Is 3+1 spacetime as privileged as is claimed?
I think that the uncertainty principle is a pretty strong assumption to start with if you're trying to justify three spatial dimensions.

comment Has every possible interaction between elementary particles been observed?
I guess I am mostly interested in examples that fall within the energies that accelerators are currently able to test (including things beyond the SM, but I was under the impression we don't have the energy to test any of those things yet).

comment Has every possible interaction between elementary particles been observed?
Thanks for these answers! The wikipedia article says that models that predict proton decay say the half life is around 10^36 years. Considering this is so much longer than the age of the universe, how likely is it that this could be observed? And I'm guessing this 10^36 years is the average half-life of a proton, is it possible that some protons could have already decayed? Is it theoretically possible to speed up this decay by say elevating its energy or something?

Very interesting! Thanks for this answer.
