Particle Count Reduction in an E8 Standard Model

Authors: J Gregory Moxness

By definition in Lie Algebras, all roots can be composed from either all positive or all negative combinations of their "simple roots". Taking a modified A.G. Lisi split real even E8 model with 240 fundamental physics particles associated with an extended Standard Model, a particle count reduction (from 240 fundamental particles to 8 "elemental" particles) is determined from these 8 simple roots. Interestingly, by taking account of the particle mass assignments, all known fermions {e/ν, u/d, c/s, t/b}, as well as known (plus the Lisi predicted) bosons {W/B, gluons(g), ω, eφ, xΦ} can be generated with the sum of the simple root masses being less than the resulting composite particle masses (with the exception of the four 2nd and 3rd generation lepton
