## The Tetron Model in 6+1 Dimensions

**Authors:** Bodo Lampe

The possibility of a 6+1 dimensional spacetime model being the fundamental
theory for elementary particle interactions is explored. The dynamical object
is an (octonion) spinor defined over a spacetime lattice with S8 permutation
symmetry which gets broken to S4 x S4. Electroweak parity violation is
argued to arise from the interplay of the two permutation groups S4 or eventually
from the definition of the octonion product. It corresponds to a change
in sign for odd permutation lattice transformations and is shown to suggest
a form for the Hamiltonian.
