comment Finding current in a sphere while given a changing current density
A sphere has a constant radius $R$, therefore you don't have to integrate over that. OTOH, your integral is missing $\phi$. And BTW, your integrals get much more readable if you prefix each $d$ with a thin space which you get using \,.

comment Superluminal neutrinos
Actually the impossibility of FTL neutrinos is quite different from the impossibility of tunnelling through a brick wall. Tunnelling through a brick wall wouldn't actually violate any known law of physics, it's just sufficiently improbable according to those laws that if we ever observed it, we'd consider it more likely that our theories have to be amended than that we just have observed such an unlikely event. As such, it is comparable to an object spontaneously heating up in a cold environment. FTL OTOH is not just extremely improbable, but forbidden by the currently known laws of physics.

comment Superluminal neutrinos
Indeed, they didn't report "we found superluminal neutrinos" but "we measured data that looks like superluminal neutrinos, but after searching for quite some time still cannot find an error in the experiment, so we now decided to publish so that others can check if we have possibly a real effect; we keep searching for an error anyways." How more honest can you be? (I'm a theorist, BTW; you do not have to be an experimentalist to acknowledge that.)

@user3321289: The mathematical field which treats such questions is called differential geometry.

comment Foundations of the notion of elementary particle in the Standard Model
I don't think it gives a mathematical reason, but for that I don't know enough about the standard model (otherwise I would have answered instead of commenting). My point is that the additional particles listed on the Wikipedia page are explicitly no standard model particles.

comment Foundations of the notion of elementary particle in the Standard Model
The hypothetical particles are not predicted by the standard model, but by extensions.

comment Foundations of the notion of elementary particle in the Standard Model
If you look at the section titles, you'll notice that you'll only see 18 particles before reaching the section "hypothetical particles".
